Hummingbird Haven

As most of you know the hummingbirds are very plentiful here.  We spend a lot of time watching them, counting them, and trying to distinguish the varieties.  There are several types that are landing on our feeder but not sure exactly how many different ones there are!  They move way to fast.  This morning, while we sat drinking coffee, (yes, even I drank coffee,  aren't you all proud of me) I counted eight hummingbirds.  After the guys all left, Madison decided to go out and sit on the deck to watch the birds.



Out this front window, we have several feeders.  This deck wraps around the whole cabin.  This picture is the view from the living area looking out to the deck.  (just trying to give you a brief glimpse of the beautiful setting we have here at Lost Trail.)

Anyway, on with the story.  Madison decided to sit out on the deck this morning and watch all of them fly around.  While she was sitting out there one of the little hummingbirds ran straight into the glass and knocked himself silly (it may should read herself, not sure, LOL).  Tina and I ran out there as quickly as possible, as quick as we both could move, not to fast I'm sure , to see if the bird was still alive. It was just seemed a little dazed and confused.  Madi picked it up and held it until he got his bearings back and flew off.  It was such a cute little bird, I'm glad he made it through such a traumatic event.  Madi was thankful for the opportunity to be up close and personal with such a unique little bird.
