We hosted Desert Rivers Audubon Society for a ‘Breakfast with the Hummingbirds’ morning.
A full breakfast on the patios was served, incuding Southwestern Srambled Eggs (eggs with green chiles, garlic, onion, peppers), bacon, Crispy Oven-baked Spiced Red Potatoes, Homemade Blueberry Muffins, a and beautiful variety fruit plate.
They WERE DELICIOUS! Comments included “…fabulous breakfast!”
“…offered a great feast and outstanding hospitality!”
“Scrumptious blueberry muffins”
With delicious food on their plates and a cool drink at the ready, they enjoyed the buzzing of the humingbirds all around them.
Many of their target species were seen including Northern Beardless Tyrannulets and Rufous-winged Sparrows. The juvenile Cooper’s Hawks were actively learning to fly. Their parents were killing machines, providing dinner for all.
Hummingbird numbers are increasing, but, still diminished compared to several years ago. We have four species everyday. The migration should start in a month and it will be crazy. We plan on offering our breakfasts for multiple dates in August. Minimum size of a group is six, maximum twelve,
