Hummingbird Pictures

A male Anna's Hummingbird perches on a twig with its head tilted up and its red gorget visible as it sings.Welcome. was created to share our close up hummingbird pictures, videos, and information with fellow hummingbird beginners and enthusiasts.

Large photos of hummingbirds found in the United States and Canada are featured, often with simple observations of the bird’s behavior at the time of the photo. We have been delighted to discover many more hummingbird species come through the U.S. than we had imagined.

Anna’s Hummingbirds

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 photos, and videos gathered here in our “Nesting Hummingbirds” posts.

Here’s what happening in the yard these days. Watch in HD to see the fly!

We streamed video live of Anna’s Hummingbird nests from urban Arizona in April and May 2013. See this tab for information on the Arizona Hummingbird Nest Cam.

Attract Hummingbirds

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.
