SBS: Sheila’s Bird Shots: ~Broad-tailed Hummingbird and Eurasian Collared-Dove~

The hummingbirds love to sit on one of our Amateur Ham Radio antennas.  During the summer, I have captured a few of them sitting on this wire.

Today, I walked outside and she was sitting, pretty as you please, in a Juniper tree, no more than ten feet away. She did not seem to be in a hurry to fly away. Did I have my camera – no!  I know she was telling me: “Ha, no camera, I think I will just sit here.”

I could have gotten a photo without the wire, maybe!

Another frequent visitor to my yard, this summer, has been the Eurasian Collared-Dove. I was enjoying a little sun, out on the deck, and I happened to look into the Apple tree and this Dove was asking me to take its picture. It then fly over to the Pine tree and posed again for me.

I took the Broad-tailed Hummingbird photo on September 15, 2013 and the Dove photos on September 18, 2013.

  1. That first picture is brilliant. It looks like the hummingbird is sitting peacefully while the rest of the world is vibrating in the background. Love the other shots too. Just amazing.

    1. Cubby, these exquisite little birds are so strong! It is amazing the distances they migrate each year – Central America to the United States and back. I am glad you like her!
