"Hummingbird Trail Class Today at the State Botanical
Garden of Georgia"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
I enjoyed teaching my class today "Where do the
hummingbirds 'hide'?" at the Botanical Garden. Thanks to my friend Heather
Lickliter Larkin for doing the Q & A for us! After class, we walked the
trail and had fun watching the hummers chase each other.
Trail maps are available in the Visitor's Center. The hot spots
today were markers # 11 and # 17 - # 19.
There seems to be a decline in the numbers of hummingbirds this
year. Remember the females are nesting and on their nest most of the hour.
Join us for our next two rambles on July 30 and August 20 from
9-11 as we find the hummingbird's secret hiding places. Bring your cameras,
binoculars, water, hat and sunscreen. Everyone is invited! Hope to see you
there:) Registration and costs are on their website.
As I look at this snowy egret, I notice his legs are caddy wonky. One leg is going in one direction, and the other is a different direction. Maybe it's because I moved and he decided to change directions. I don't know if I made up this term or if I am spelling it right. Google does not recognize it. Anyone ever heard this term?
This is Ibu
and Khalessi. They live at the El Paso Zoo. Ibu is a great mom to let her
little one hang all over her. Notice how Khalessi is grabbing a hand full of
was taken one month before her birthday. She was born on April 23, 2015. They
celebrated her birthday in connection with Earth Day. There was even a gift
registry for people to buy her enrichment toys.
