Worth the Wait!

"Worth the Wait!"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
While visiting my daughter in El Paso, Texas, I have had one major thing on my mind concerning my photography…..hummingbirds! There are quite a few different species out here—much different than in Georgia where we only have the ruby-throated hummingbird. It's easy to identify hummingbirds in Georgia. It's either a male or female ruby-throated hummingbird. I recognize their sounds as well as I do a dog barking.

I am having a hard time identifying which species I am photographing. Right now, there are three main hummingbirds here—the rufous, black-chinned and the broad-tailed (which should have left in August). I did photograph a ruby-throated hummingbird back in March.

I did a lot of research before I came to Texas, so I knew several places to go. Yesterday, I visited Chamizal National Memorial Park and found them feeding on the Texas Red Yucca. I sat at the base of the plant for almost three hours. I think it was worth the wait!

If you are looking for where to find hummingbirds in El Paso, Texas, Chamizal National Memorial Park has a few!
