Sometimes, big tourist attractions come in petite packages.

If you’ve ever seen a hummingbird hover over a flower in search of sweet nectar, you know it’s hard not to fall in love with the tiny, colorful, lion-hearted ball of feathers.

August kicks off several hummingbird festivals as the tiny creatures begin their migrations south for the winter -- sometimes a 3,000-mile journey -- and this year, the resort town of Sedona, Ariz., is joining in.

We have many hummingbirds that come into our backyard, even making nests. But the most beautiful sight I ever saw with hummingbirds was about 5 years ago.

I was with a friend looking at a house for sale in the Palos Verdes, California area. In the backyard was a large bush, I believe it was a Tecomaria (Cape Honeysuckle). There must have been thousands of hummingbirds around this bush. The noise from their wings was deafening. It was amazing to see so many in one place.
