Tuesdays Show and tail . . .

It is Angela's at West Virginia Treasure's One year Anniversary today - please check her out and join us on Show and Tail Tuesdays. She'll tell you all about it there.

Alaska Hummingbird



I went to Alaska two years ago - I never saw a hummingbird - but this is quite interesting. They are drinking right out of their hands. Enjoy . . .

Trusting. Loving.

Oh my Sandie! I love, love, love hummingbirds! That is just amazing how they were eating right out of their hands like that. And there were so many of them too! I had no idea that they went to Alaska! I would have thought it would be too cold for them there. Thanks for sharing such an interesting video with us this week!

Oh I love hummingbirds! We had a ton here about a month ago, but it's gotten too chilly and now they've move on.

This is amazing and beautiful. I NEVER would have connected Alaska with hummingbirds!! Thanks for these beautiful video memories!

I agree with the commenter that they wouldn't have thought of Alaska and hummingbirds as going together. They must be so hearty of birds to survive the elements. What a neat video Sandie!

So tiny. I never would have thought they'd be in Alaska, either.

Love the quotes. They're speaking to me right now...

Loved the hummers, Sandie. So adorable and amazing.

Got a kick out of GS trying to climb that bear in your last post. He's a riot.

Take care and have a wonderful evening. Susan

Wow!
Were that me, I'm sure my hand would be trembling from sheer excitement. Then, of course, they wouldn't come anywhere's near)!

My husband loves hummingbirds. Actually I do also. I didn't have the heart to put up our feeder this summer without him home. Next spring. Never knew you could feed one from your hand! Amazing.

Isn't that just the most amazing video? I've never seen so many hummers. I would love to do that myself!
