We have 10 different Hummingbird species in Texas.
I just love watching them come to the flowers.

I saw hummingbirds in the garden today - drinking from the trumpet flowers.

The photos are all Steph's and they are great.  We have Sandhill cranes in the Okefenokee, Payne's Prairie and sometimes just in a cow pasture.  I love all babies, human and otherwise.  I find it hard to believe that 80% of hatchlings don't make it to the following year.
