Violet Sabrewing

The video above has just been released by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. For 100 years, Cornell has been studying and researching the avian world. With over 10,00 species on our planet, their efforts in understanding the natural world and conservation efforts has educated generations throughout the past century.

This 100 year thank you video has a wonderful narrative that puts into words the connection we feel with nature and the living creatures within. I hope you watch and perhaps it will encourage you to become more in tune with the natural world around you.

Now on to the promised Hummingbird a day week. At the Peace Lodge and Waterfall Gardens the Violet Sabrewing is the dominant hummingbird on site. Twice a day, visitors can go to the Hummingbird garden and receive a small hummingbird feeder to hold.

The thrill of having a hummingbird come so close and enjoy the sweet nectar is incredible.
