After a few weeks of severe cold and snow, we are in a February thaw. It has been beautiful, with sunny skies and temps in the 30's to low 40's. What a change from highs in the single digits just a week ago! We had a customer call from Israel a few days ago wanting some hummingbird feeders as quicky as we could get them to them. They had some snow and were worried about their Sunbirds. We checked into the quickest means to get them out and mailed them right away. They received them yesterday and they emailed us some pictures of the birds eating from the feeders. WOW!! I have never seen this type of bird before, they are beautiful.

Hi, I am new to the birding and the whole blog thing. I want to learn more about both. I have a home in Kino Springs, AZ which is next to a bird sanctuary. It is also about 15 miles from Patagonia which I have heard is the under the flight zone of most of the migrating birds. I am looking forward to joining the many wirdwatchers I see in the area! If anyone has any tips or advice for a new newbie I would love to hear from you!! Thank you, Sharon

I just happened to notice your blog. I'm in southern California, far from the icy cold you are in, but I just had a sighting of Cedar Waxwings in my jacarunda tree. A whole flock of them. I used to live in NY, so I know what they look like though I've never seen them here. Have you ever heard of this?? I think its rare that they're all the way down here. Global warming?

Thank you for your web site and your blog - I wish you'd blog more...
We live in the Seattle, WA area and have had Hummers all year long - we never take our feeders down and enjoy them all the time. Right now we seem to have many of them, as the feeders are emptied daily.
I've just finished reading all of Arnette Heidcamp's books and just wish I'd be better in identifying the individual birds. Any tips on that?

Can anyone tell me how common it is to have a nesting humming bird in your patio ? I live in Las Vegas and have been watching a green humming bird build and sit in a nest in my back patio. Sorry if this is a dumb question.
Thanks

We also had a hummingbird nesting about 5 years ago in a tree right outside our second story home near our deck. We never did see the babies fly away, but was neat seeing the Mother feed them!
