Sleeping Hummingbird

We have an amazing sunroom on the west end of our house that has huge picture windows facing both south and west. We’ve placed all of our bird feeders outside of these windows and it creates and unbelievable bird watching experience.

We put our hummingbird feeder out last weekend after I saw my first hummer and this one (maybe others too) has been hanging around ever since.

This little guy was perched right near the glass to allow for extreme close up images using a 200 mm lens. Is he not just the cutest thing? I am mesmerized by these photos of this hummingbird. He looks almost big in these photos but he’s super tiny!


Do you need a recipe for hummingbird food?

How to make Hummingbird Nectar:
Mix four cups of water with one cup of sugar in a saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil and remove from heat. Let nectar cool before filling your feeder.


Eyes open, eyes closed.
