Costa's Humming bird 3 1/4" L
Broad-Tailed humming bird 3 3/4" L
This kind man told us all about seeds of the desert and showed me the Agave plant from which we get sweetener from. We have these plants in Florida and I thought they were Mexican Bayonet.
These birds flew around us in the Raptor free flight area on the Desert Loop Trail. Super cool to see them flying over head.

Anna's humming bird 3 3/4"L
The extensive garden areas were absolutely beautiful. A very well done desert museum to say the very least. A must see and stop. The humming bird aviary was very cool to have all the little hummers flying by you and some checking you out. We found 3 nests....my photos of these jewels were disappointing due to incorrect settings on my camera. ....a Charlie Brown .....Ahhhhh!!!!......Ahhhhhh !!!!! frustrating moment.

After my husbands widow maker heart attack in 2004, the doctor said just relax and enjoy life for a while. So it happened: the 43' NewMar Mountain Aire coach was purchased and the house sold....eventually. Relaxing? Not always! We are truly blessed to spend this time together... and with friends.
