Davis Mountains Hummingbirds in August

This is your invitation to join me for three days of great bird photography at Fort Davis, Texas from August 22-24. You could get lucky and finish the week with 6-7 species. Where else in Texas can you do that?

Broad-tailed Hummingbird, male
Black-chinned Hummingbird male in flight.
Costa’s Hummingbird, male on feeder, Davis Mts.
Calliope Hummingbird, male flying toward me.
Rufous Hummingbird, male hovering.

I saw all of these last year at our feeders and photographed them all except the Calliope. Several in my workshop group even got the little guy. Costa’s was the only bird that wouldn’t cooperate by hovering near a feeder. He would land on it but never hovered. Photograph with me and I’ll show you how to make him hover…

There are several feeders and water sites mixed with our hummingbird feeders at the photo site. We regularly saw ladder-backed and acorn woodpeckers, white-breasted nuthatch, Woodhouse’s Jay, wild turkey, black-headed grosbeak, bushtit, and a host of other songbirds.

Contact me at lditto@larryditto.com if you want to attend this workshop. I’ll send you all the details right away. There is space for 5 more photographers, so act quickly.
