BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).

This private sanctuary is now permanently closed to the general public, as a result of a lawsuit brought by a neighbor. Only my friends and personal guests may visit (

Hummingbird on stilts, and in Maryland

Well, not quite. The video shows stilts on the pond, and then, hearing a hummingbird arrive at the nearby feeder, I quickly switch the view to film the hummer. One cannot imagine 2 more contrasting birds than the hummingbird and the stilt (both very aptly named).
The first hummers of 2014 have already reached Maryland - see the migration map and get your feeders ready!
