Broadtailed Humm Dinger
Hummingbirds fascinate us. We put food out in Mid April until Mid September. Tom is up every single Summer day at 5:30 to put out all 8 feeders. He has taught them to land on his finger if he stands still enough by the feeder. Now our visiting guests delight in doing this too, we snap a picture to commemorate it for them. Sometimes we have to tell the most learned big guys, "Yes, You can still breathe, while standing there holding your finger still." The Hummer Feeding Show starts every Summer evening about 7:00 to 8:30. Sunsets are included.

We have 3 kinds of Hummers here in Evergreen. this is the Broadtailed Hummingbird. The throats on these birds are much darker color red. When throated or wanting to show dominance the males distent these red throat featers and flair their tails. When flying the males tails buzz. The females do not have the red throat feathers or a tail that buzzes. These are often confused with the Midwestern Ruby Throated Hummer. My need was to paint each of them getting the syrup out of the flowers in our yard. They are so tiny I wanted to catch them each in a different pose, wings flapping a different way to get to their reward. They are the most Beautiful and cute little acrobats you will ever see.

These are from my photos at flowers in our yard.

As a grouping, the 7/8" edge has the flowers, stems, or leaves painted on at least one of the edges that will show. There are wire hangers in the back and do not need to be framed.
