Bird Figurine Series - #26

        Janine and I have always been fascinated by hummingbirds and were always thrilled to see the national bird of Jamaica, The Jamaican Streamer Tail Hummingbird. For a long time we rarely saw him and I can remember the last time when we were so surprised to see one perched on our veranda gate. Oh how I wish we had our camera nearby.  We have always wanted to have figurines of this bird in our collection. To date it is not yet in the collection but happily I have items featuring it including the candlesticks below.
              Well, I could not have such a huge collection without some hummingbirds.

We love hummingbirds too and we feed them year around. I just love to watch them fight over the feeders. And fight they do.

Your hummingbirds are very beautiful. Love the tail.

Have a terrific day Judy. ☺

Hummingbirds are one of my favorite I always enjoy feeding them in the summer months, so it's easy to see why you enjoy collecting hummingbird items. I found your blog while blog hopping and I am now following via gfc. Hope you will drop by my blog at kittycrochettwo.blogspot.com when you get a chance. Have a fantastic rest of the week!

I don't think I've ever seen a hummingbird in real life, but I would be excited if I did. Your collection of them is nice, and I really like the candlesticks, they have a nice thick base!

What a beautiful collection.

Theresa said...

Hummingbirds are so beautiful. I saw my first real one about 4 years ago flying around my neighbors flowerbed. I wanted to run and grab my camera, but was scared it would fly away, so I just watched it for a bit. I couldn't believe how tiny he was too!
