Hummingbirds: The Joy Of Creation

Every mid-May the hummingbirds return to our area, and when they get here, our feeder is out to greet them. Because of these busy, tiny birds, it is a joyful time of year.

The males come back first, setting up territories that they vigorously defend. Then female hummers return, and after that - babies. The cycle continues, and it is good.

Our feeder can be seen from our kitchen sink, and when we are cooking or doing dishes there is endless entertainment just outside the window.

It is said that hummingbirds open the heart. 

When we connect with hummingbirds, we delight in the sheer joy of living. 

Life is a wonderland of sensuous delights, and we exist in its beauty, delighting in spring flowers, aromas, early sunrises, and the taste of fresh wholesome foods. 

Hummingbirds remind us to laugh and enjoy creation, to appreciate the magic of being alive and the beauty of nature all around us.

Sure the world can be a messed up place, but that should not blind us to the infinite beauty around us at all times.

This is the vision, and gift, of heart-opening Hummingbirds.

  1. We used to have a crabapple tree just a few meters from the kitchen window that was over the sink - what a total joy to linger over dishwashing and kitchen cleanup when the tree was in full blossom and the hummingbirds were humming about.
