Hummingbirds at the Arizona Desert Museum


If you’re a fan of hummingbirds, you are obligated to visit the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. It’s more of a living museum as it includes gorgeous desert gardens and a number of live desert animals. If you come in March/April, you’ll be lucky enough to witness the nesting, birthing, and fledging of numerous hummingbirds. When I was there, eight nests were in full swing representing egg, baby, and fledgling stages. There were about 21 adult birds constantly whizzing about, pausing mid-air to stare in the face at us or investigate our shoes. I even got to see the caretakers feed fruit flies to the hummers. Bring your high-zoom camera and your patience. These pics are all my own as the birds approach extremely close. But, they don’t always pose for more than half a second!
