Bring hummingbirds into your life through Hummingbird Pictures.
On this site, you will find close-up photos, videos, and information about the hummingbirds we see in the United States (and in Canada). Large photos are featured in our blog, often with simple observations of the hummingbird’s behavior at the time of the photo.
Pictures of hummingbird species found in the United States and Canada are gathered in our blog posts. Look for photos of North American hummingbirds, including Anna’s, Allen’s, Black-chinned, Blue-throated, Broad-billed, Broad-tailed, Calliope, Costa’s, Magnificent, Ruby-throated, and Rufous Hummingbirds. We continue to add photos over time.

Anna’s Hummingbirds have nested in and near our central Arizona yard over the years. These hummingbirds have constructed and repaired their nests with material from the garden and have raised chicks using nectar from the flowering plants and hummingbird feeders. Look for nesting hummingbird pictures and videos gathered here in our “Babies and Nests” posts.
Watch in HD to see the fly.
We streamed video live of Anna’s Hummingbird nests from urban Arizona in April and May 2013. Here’s what happened: Arizona Hummingbird Nest Cam.
You can attract hummingbirds to your own yard with flowers or with a feeder. Both approaches have their advantages. We have found expert gardeners and good advice at our local botanical gardens and nurseries. Look for our garden plant photos, hummingbird feeder examples, hummingbird food recipe, and suggestions on other garden elements in the Attract Hummingbirds part of the site.
