Hummingbirds, my heart just melts each and every time they arrive back in Colorado! So many people may wonder … what bird is that? If you are ever unsure of a bird you see or hear a great resource is The Cornell Lab of Ornithology
, for me they are a world leader in the study, appreciation, and conservation of birds. This special “hummer” is actually the smallest long-distance migrant bird in North America, spending its winters in Mexico! They are truly TEENY, TINY .
This male Calliope Hummingbird inhabits mountain areas of the northwestern United States. At the Cabin, we have about a 2-10% chance of ever seeing one… WOW! Our 2 popular species that we see daily are the Broad-tailed Hummingbird and the Rufous Hummingbird … more on those later. Do you have a Hummingbird story or a favorite species that visits your yard in the summer?
