From our Hummingbird Camp on Hermosa Creek, Colorado

Levi watched a hummingbird land in a nearby branch at camp & pointed it out to Joe.  After looking for a moment, Joe realized it was a nest!  None of us had ever seen a hummingbird nest in the wild - and it had 2 nestlings!  We watched the parent for the 3 days/nights we were at this camp keep busy feeding.  It was a broad-tailed hummingbird.

The whole place was busy with hummingbird activity - lots of bright orange flowers in the meadows they were feeding from.

The whole trip I grazed continuously on raw dandelion greens.  These are sauteed with onions & mushrooms.  I was enchanted with the foods that could be gathered wild.  I brought back a wild collected tea blend of:  red raspberry leaf, rose hips, saskatoon berries, rose buds, and yarrow.
