This website happened because I have a very prolific hummingbird in my yard. My wife and I call her Sweetiebird and she has had six generations of chicks in our yard. I filmed the last four generations in HD video and that forms a lot of the initial content on this website.
I have been a photographer all my life and I love photographing these birds. The HD Video is really a great way to see them. The image quality is stunning and the process of watching the birth and growth of these hummingbird chicks is fascinating and beautiful. A large part of the joy is watching the day by day growth of the chicks and then the anticipation of flight.
I also have a Facebook page which you can find by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page and there you can see some of the drama that goes on as I watch these birds. Sometimes birds get their nests upset, or fall prey to other forces of nature. These are wild birds and things do not always go as planned. When I find a distressed bird or nest, I take it to Wild ARC which is it's best hope. They do amazing work out there.
If you want to help wild birds and animals, please donate to Wild ARC They do a great job of saving wild birds and animals that would otherwise be left to suffer and die. They have helped me several times when I needed to get assistance for hummingbirds and other animals.
