Louisiana birds, plantation homes, and Christmas bonfires
"Specializing" in hummingbird photography
By Joe Turner MD

Hummingbirds are my photo "specialty". For most of the year here in Louisiana we have essentially only the Ruby-throated hummingbird which breeds here. In the winter, however, we have a large number of "western" hummingbirds which winter here. In fact, there have been a total of 13 species of hummingbirds recorded in this state. So far I have photographed 10 species of hummingbirds. I have created separate index pages for each species of hummingbird. Click on a picture to link to a particular species, or click on the first and you can page through all the photographs. I am by no means a hummingbird plant expert, but I have made an attempt to include the names of the plants at which the birds are feeding. If you would like a copy of my yard's hummingbird plant list with comments, you can download the Word file here.There are also links to pages of other non-hummingbird bird photographs, plantation homes, Christmas bonfires, astrophotography and some vacation scenics.  Thank you for visiting, and I hope you come back often.
