Our June/July 2014 issue features everything hummingbird, including an all-hummingbird edition of bird tales. Reader Cathy Scott of Bow, Washington, sent in this fantastic bird tale about hummingbirds bathing in her yard:
“I’m an avid hobby photographer, and some of my favorite subjects are the hummingbirds in my yard. When it was hot and dry for quite a while here in northwest Washington, I propped up the hose so it offered a gentle shower for the hummingbirds to play in. They took to it within minutes, and I was fortunate enough to get some photos and a video. I hooked up their shower several times, and they always took advantage of it.”
Did she say “video”? Why yes, yes she did. And better yet, she shared it with us. Click below for the cuteness.
