Hummingbirds!

At night, I sometimes dream that I can fly--and I think any creature with wings is pretty cool. But after bats, my favorite winged critters are hummingbirds.

This site tells you what kinds of trees and flowers to plant to get hummers to visit your backyard. It answers questions about setting up and using hummingbird feeders. Plus, there are lots of great photos of the little buzzbombs!
