Video: Our First Hummingbird Rescue



If you don’t know by now, I LOVE MY HUMMINGBIRDS!

I know that they’re not exclusive to Costa Rica, but I have never lived anywhere where I could see them on a daily basis.  I have 4 feeders on my property, and I need to get more.  These hummingbirds drink about 1/2 a gallon of nectar a day.  I also want to plant more flowers that they like (they prefer the color red).

The video is of a Rufous Tailed Hummingbird.  Other species of hummingbirds that come to our feeders include the tiny Scintillant Hummingbird and the significantly bigger Violet Sabrewing Hummingbird.

Living in Costa Rica, I have a better appreciation of all birds, from the simple sparrows to the colorful Macaws.

You can’t help but get back to nature, that’s one of the reasons why I love this beautiful little country!
