16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Broadtail Hummingbird

I go through a half gallon of sugar water per day in two feeders that hang just outside an upstairs window. These birds live 3-5 years, winter in Mexico and summer in Colorado, and come back to exactly the same place each year. I feel like I have old friends each summer.
