Like thoughts that flit across the mind,
Leaving no lasting trace behind,
The humming-bird darts to and fro,
Comes, vanishes before we know.

What birds bring you Joy? The hummingbird is like a cute little fairy. It is magical how it hovers and darts. We do everything we can to attract them to our yard. They love red native plants.
Their migration has begun and they are fueling their tiny bodies for a long journey. It is always sad to say goodbye, but they’ll be back next spring. The first Saturday in September is National Hummingbird Day!
