  1. New coloring book out today! This one is a small book about hummingbirds, called "The Tiny Hummingbird Coloring Book." It has illustrations of 17 hummingbirds from North and South America, word puzzles, and observation sheets for recording your own observations. It's just 4 by 6 inches, so it can fit in your pocket! If you're interested, you can find free pages on my website: https://colorbird.org/tiny-hummingbird-book/. Let me know what you think!
  2. Hi folks. Does anyone have a good picture of a Rufous Hummingbird that I can trace for my new coloring book? I have a page about migration, and I want to have a Rufous Hummingbird, because of their amazing migrations.
  3. Yes, January 7, 2018 at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, AZ. From ebird, I see other observations of Rufous Hummingbirds at Desert Botanical Gardens from December 2017 to July 2018: https://media.ebird.org/catalog?taxonCode=rufhum&mediaType=photo&regionCode=L210015&view=list&sort=obs_date_desc
  4. Hmm, it does look like a Costa's. Here a a photo of a different hummingbird at the same location on the same day, but I guess this is a different species, so maybe that's not helpful. Anyone have ID thoughts on the photo in the first post? I'd like to correctly ID it for a project I'm working on. Thanks!
  5. Hi folks. Here's a picture from the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, AZ. I took it on the evening of January 7, 2018, when the bird was resting on a branch. Is this a Rufous Hummingbird or something else? Thanks!
  6. "A Colorful Introduction to Birds" has been out for over a month now! If you got a copy (and didn't help with the book yourself), feel free to leave your honest review on the Amazon page: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0D2V188WK. I'd love to hear what you think! Also, if you'd like copies for an educational or outreach event, I'm happy to sell them at cost, which is around $4 per book. If you're interested, you can reach out to me directly. Thanks!
  7. Some activities for my tiny hummingbird coloring book: a crossword and a word search. Do these look fun?
  8. Here's mine: a Roseate Spoonbill with a fish, from Gilbert Riparian Preserve in Arizona. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/395795901
  9. Hi folks. Free book giveaway! I want to get my book into people's hands, so here's the deal: if you'd like a free copy of "A Colorful Introduction to Birds," tell me about your favorite bird below. It should be a bird you've seen in the wild. Tell me why it's your favorite. Does it have cool feathers/colors/behavior? Did you have a particularly memorable experience when you saw it? A week from now, I'll pick three posts at random. If you send me a mailing address, I'll send you two copies of "A Colorful introduction to Birds"! Some requests: I'll send two copies. You can keep one copy, but please give the other copy to someone you know. Also, feel free to let me know what you think, and leave a review on Amazon if you want. These requests are purely optional, but would help me. Anyway, what's your favorite bird?
  10. Hi folks. For over a year now, with help from some of the other members here, I've been working on a bird coloring book. It has illustrations of 50 real bird species, word puzzles, and information about bird colors, flight, and more. I'm very pleased with how it turned out, and @Kevin gave me permission to make a thread. The book is available on Amazon, but if any of you want multiple copies for a bird outreach event, I should be able to offer you books at cost. Just send me a message. Anyway, the book is called "A Colorful Introduction to Birds". I've posted the cover and some pages below. Thanks @The Bird Nuts for the wonderful cover! You can find more pages on my website https://colorbird.org/. And here's the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0D2V188WK. If you have any questions about the book, I'm happy to chat. And if you'd like to contribute photos to my next book (about hummingbirds), let me know! Thanks to everyone in the great community here.
  11. My new coloring book, "A Colorful Introduction to Birds," is nearly out! In preparation, I updated my website with a lot of free pages from the new book. You can download PDFs of bird illustrations, activities, and fun information about bird topics. Check it out here: https://colorbird.org/ I'd like the website to be fun and useful, regardless of whether someone purchases the coloring books. Let me know if you have any suggestions!
  12. You all take fantastic photos! I decided to use some from @The Bird Nuts so I could show the difference between male and female/immature Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. If anyone has photos of other hummingbird species, I'd love to use them. @kansabirdguy, those are great, but I think I need a bit more detail for this. Thanks!
  13. Hi folks. Here's a photo of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird from @The Bird Nuts (posted with permission). It was taken in Vermont in August. Is there any way to tell whether this is a female or a juvenile male? I'm tracing it for a coloring book, and want to accurately represent it. Thanks!
