Happy Hummer Days!

It’s Christmas morning….for us, with out kids, all is calm and all is quiet. We celebrated with our family and gift giving the previous night, but it was this morning we got a most wonderful, and unexpected gift!

The weather was sunny and mild, so we took our coffee out on the porch to enjoy the beauty of Arizona this time of year! As we watched the morning sun streaming through the yard, we could catch glimpses of sparkling color among the branches of the trees and shrubs. Just like little Christmas ornaments, the hummingbirds were decorating the desert landscape, as they woke up, preening and warming in the rising sun. Perfect timing for getting some great new photos!

We wandered through the yard, as if on a treasure hunt, looking for all the little jewels among the branches.

We are so lucky to be able to spend Christmas with our little hummer friends, as folks in colder climates don’t get this opportunity!

And, this Christmas morning, the hummingbirds were out in their full glory, chirping, buzzing and trilling!

We were having such a great time! And it got even better when this little broad bill posed for me…

  • Hummers are one of my favorite critters, I have one that comes to my yard and defends it against all intruders. Wish she would let them stay, there’s plenty of ”hummer” plants for them all. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you both!
