The video above has just been released by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. For 100 years, Cornell has been studying and researching the avian world. With over 10,00 species on our planet, their efforts in understanding the natural world and conservation efforts has educated generations throughout the past century.
This 100 year thank you video has a wonderful narrative that puts into words the connection we feel with nature and the living creatures within. I hope you watch and perhaps it will encourage you to become more in tune with the natural world around you.
Now on to the promised Hummingbird a day week. At the Peace Lodge and Waterfall Gardens the Violet Sabrewing is the dominant hummingbird on site. Twice a day, visitors can go to the Hummingbird garden and receive a small hummingbird feeder to hold.
The thrill of having a hummingbird come so close and enjoy the sweet nectar is incredible.
Thanks Emily for sharing the video and your beautiful images. Have a fulfilling 2016. Chris😊
Dear Chris, it is truly my pleasure to share this with you. Big things (I hope) for the year for both you and I. Happy New Year!
I received that wonderful video too. They do such good work! I can only imagine how wonderful it is to have a hummingbird come and eat from your hand! Thanks for the lovely picture Emily.
It was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had Tiny. And if you hold it right around the rim, they actually landed on your finger ! My friend had one poop on her. LOL!
Love the hummingbird. And thank you for sharing the video. It says it all. I’m going to have to share it.
Oh I hope you do, it’s so heartwarming and helps us stay connected to the earth. Enjoy the week.
Every post is a joyful celebration of our fellow creatures. Thank you, Emily.
I never thought of it in those words, but you’re absolutely right! My pleasure to share as you know Rebecca.
