Christmas gift ideas for hummingbird lovers

I’ve created a post with some Christmas gift ideas for hummingbird lovers. I think I’ve given you quite a variety of suggestions that will please the hummingbird lover on your shopping list.

Heart shaped hummingbird pendant – Choices for this handmade pendant are gold, gold finish or stainless steel. It features hummingbirds and flowers in shades of blue, green, pink and purple. If you select the engraved option, you can personalize the message you want on the back of the pendant.

Hummingbirds and flowers 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle – This colorful jigsaw puzzle has hummingbirds and butterflies surrounded by beautiful flowers. The finished size is 20 inches by 27 inches.

Hummingbird brooch – Most women love jewelry, so this would be ideal for an aunt, grandmom, mom, sister, wife or a special friend. It measures 4 centimeters x 4 centimeters. This pretty hummingbird is made from crystal, enamel and metal in blue, gold and white.

Hummingbird candle holder – This handmade candle holder is made from 16 gauge steel. It has a 4.1 inch diameter and is 6.5 inches tall. It’s powder coated for a long-lasting finish. Unless some colors are sold out you can choose from 18 colors.

Hummingbird cosmetic bag – The fabric is a natural colored linen polyester blend with a hummingbird design printed on one side of the bag. It measures approximately 9.45 inches x 5.90 inches. It’s personalized with your name of choice.

Metal hummingbird Christmas ornament – Made from steel, this hummingbird ornament is heated to oxidize the metal, creating its pretty colors and then coated with a hard clear enamel. The size is approximately 6 inches high and 3 inches wide. It has a chrome ring with hemp twine for hanging on the Christmas tree.

Mini embossing rolling pin – If you have someone you know who loves to bake and also loves hummingbirds, this definitely would be the gift for them. The rolling pin is made of beech wood then covered with oil approved for direct contact with food. It protects the wood and makes it easier to apply patterns, because the dough doesn’t stick so easily to the surface of the roller. A shortbread cookie recipe is included.

Personalized hummingbird mug – You have a choice of black or white available in 11 ounces or 15 ounces. The handmade ceramic mug design featured on both sides is a hummingbird feeding on flowers.

Our final hummingbird sighting of 2022

Our final hummingbird sighting of 2022 was on either September 15th or 16th. Our visiting hummingbirds are usually gone between the second and third weeks of September every year. We had many visitors this year and there was one three week stretch where we were refilling our feeder twice a week. Our flower activity seemed less this year, maybe because we had a very hot and dry summer. All in all, a pretty good hummingbird year. Below are some hummingbird photos from this year.

August is our best month for hummingbird watching

August is our best month for hummingbird watching because it’s the time of year we see the most hummingbirds.

It appears to us that the migration back home starts in early to mid August. The first sign is that the male hummingbirds have started showing up at our feeders more than usual. We also get more than one hummingbird at a time visiting, which causes them to chase each other around our yard. The photo below shows two hummingbirds staring at each other on our feeder.

Like clockwork every year, our visiting hummingbirds leave around the middle of September. So, we have about a month left of hummingbird watching.

    Our first and final hummingbird sightings of 2021 and new hummingbird photos

    Our first hummingbird sighting of 2021 was in the third week of April. That’s within a week of when our first sighting usually is. The first hummingbird we saw was a male ruby-throat and about a week and a half later we saw our first female ruby-throat hummingbird. This also is how it usually happens for us.

    We had a lot of activity for 2 or 3 weeks and then it dropped off in visits when the hummingbirds started nesting. After the nesting time was over our hummingbird visits picked up. All of the hummingbird sightings stopped in the third week of September. This happens every year like clockwork. One thing that was different this year from other years was our hummingbirds didn’t go to our plants very often. They just went to the feeder and then left quickly. We figure the problem might have been a neighbor close by had put up a bird feeder that attracted a whole lot of sparrows. The sparrows chase after the hummingbirds. That may have been why they weren’t spending much time at our plants. Hopefully, it will be better next year.

    2021 hummingbird migration is almost here!

    The 2021 hummingbird migration is almost here! For all of us hummingbird enthusiasts, the migration is the most anticipated time all winter long. We’ll start watching the progress on the migration maps in early March to see where they are. We usually put our first feeder up sometime around April 15th, depending on the weather and their progress on the migration map. Male ruby-throated hummingbirds show up first and the females follow one to three weeks later. This is what happens at least where we live in the suburbs of Philadelphia. We hang our feeder from a roof pent by our front door so we can look at it each time we walk past the door. It’s pretty exciting for us each year when we spot our first hummingbird.
