Adventures in Hummingbirds

I had always thought that I might be a hummingbird person. but only seeing them on tv, on PBS, and in films, I was never sure. Well, I thought I was sure, but I was never really, really sure.

Here is my favorite show on them from Nature; Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air. I saw it online in the last six months and it made me feel almost sure. I have to see it again real soon.

  I saw a hummingbird the first week in Ohio. See Adventures in Another State Part 2 It was a magical moment. When I saw the hummingbird I thought, oh gee I think I am a hummingbird person.

I was starting to get concerned here in the warmer state. Though my brother says that he sees hummingbirds all the time in the backyard, I had lived here for four months without one sighting.

Over the weekend I saw a hummingbird in the backyard. It had the most beautiful iridescent green wings as it hovered over some flowers on some hanging vines. It was beyond magical. And yeah I am definitely a hummingbird person.

I looked up online what the hummingbird symbolizes as an animal guide and totem. It was interesting. Here is where I found out some information: Hummingbird as Totem Animal. Some of the symbolic meanings includes resurrection, simple courage, gentle strength, and opening of the heart. It goes on to say that hummingbirds, “teach us to laugh and enjoy the creation, to appreicate the magic of being alive,  and the truth of beauty.. and awaken us to the beauty of the present moment.” Sounds pretty good.

It also says, “some of us are just hummingbird people.” Yeah. some of us are.

  1. We love hummingbirds!! I used some pictures on my sets on polyvore 🙂
    Oh how glad you must be, that you can have a look on them in real life *sigh*. I can not even watch the videos in your links (not available in my country). Need to search some. The little’s want to see them. Otherwise I get some big problems with them 😉


    • Hi,

      I didn’t know that the videos available at PBS were not viewable by everyone, everywhere. Sorry about that. I can relate to littles wanting to see them. Sorry you can’t watch that video.



      • No prob, I’m glad you have written this post 🙂 We hat to go outside and watch bumblebees 🙂


      • Hi,

        Okay. Oh we saw a wonderful show about bees at PBS too. It is available online here as well. Do you have a station there that shows stuff like nature and nova? We haven’t seen any bees here in Southern California but there are lots of them in Minnesota in the summer and fall. Tons of them.
