Hummers - Sept. 2010

I was looking through some pic's on my cell phone and found this.   I must say, I was pleasantly  surprised since I forgot I even had it.  I think at the time I had more time.  LOL  BTW - this was the third attempt to post the clip.  On my desk top its great and in my Vik's pics file.  From there to here it's another story.  I'll keep trying.  :/ (Just loaded it through You-tube crossing fingers lol)

We've had 3-4 hummers that stayed with us for two winters now.  This past winter it was mild but the  previous to last we did get into extremely cool temps even had deep freezing and the little hummers were in 18 degrees and less.  With the wild chills it was rough but these little birds are very tough.  In fact the Palo Verde trees  in the clip froze back so much we lost large portions of the tree.  Since then one has come back and we've planted a new tree.  The links are a great place for kids and adults to learn state symbols and identifying hummingbirds. 

We have been getting many back not as much as 2010 - I'm hoping :)  and of course we also have the orioles that share.  Hope you enjoy ~

Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,  yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Matthew 6:26-30 ESV
