Brief Directions

From Interstate I-40 east bound, take the 447 Exit - Hartford. Travel around 3 miles on Big Creek Road.

Notes

These little hummingbirds are so active and fast, it's hard to get them still long enough for a good image. Each year there are around 4 birds come for the summer. Around the last of August, there are babies hatched, so the population increases to around 12 or 15 hummingbirds.

Description

I put out hummingbird feeders each year, and have around 12 little hummers. This male was sitting in a dogwood tree guarding one feeder.
