Close up wonder of a hummer’s tail. (Tap to enlarge all photos).
Hummers can hover and fly backwards.
Their tongue is longer than their body and rolls up when not in use!
They can flash their colors at will.
Hummers are joy in the garden!
The world’s smallest bird,
is quite brave,
and not afraid of humans.
Cheers to you from The Holler Hummers~
Meet mommy grosbeak.
She is not as flashy,
as her hubby.
But she has a subtle, more delicate beauty.
Here is her dashing Romeo.
You have to admit he is, quite the looker, and eater!
He is shy, hesitant around humans,
Cheers to you from the happy Holler honeys~
Meet the Lazuli Bunting!
He’s the new bird,
on the block!
I had never heard of a Lazuli Bunting,
until this guy showed at one of The Holler feeders.
Now he is a Holler local.
Happy Easter to you from the beauteous blue bunting~
at The Holler!
The golden girls are too.
This guy is a Bullocks Oriole.
All the rest are Hooded Orioles.
They are amazingly fun birds to have around,
because they have such comical personalities.
They head-bob, bicker, play and people watch.
Cheers to you from the handsome Holler orioles~
by the setting sun.
Cheers to you from sunkissed Sedona~

to paint Arizona’s Superstition Mountains.
The place is an impressionistic,
Cheers to you from The Superstitions~
