We all look for the bright reds, yellows and oranges in our gardens, for the cardinals, warblers and orioles - and pay less attention to these cute chippers. But although not flashing any primary colors, these delicate, bubbly beauts still have their own ways to charm us and conquer our affections.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to wake up every morning and see hummingbirds not only in your bird feeders, but flying around all day in your garden? Imagine hosting a family of hummingbirds from the day the fledglings hatch until the day they learn to sip from your very own bird feeders or honeysuckle!
No bigger than a golf ball and no heavier a teaspoon of sugar, sweet Anna’s Hummingbird will make a striking impression anywhere they fly. And what a flight. Soaring high up in the sky, then nose-diving down at 60 MPH, all the while showing off their iridescent forest-green feathers and shimmering rose-pink throats. They are essentially flying gemstones.
