I am deeply grateful for the inspiration and information
given by these hummingbird resources:
- Andrews, Ted, Animal Speak,
St. Paul, MN, Llewellyn Publications,
The original desire to create art about the spiritual essence of hummingbirds came from the book, Animal Speak, by Ted Andrews. Mr. Andrews has woven together knowledge and wisdom from every mythic and scientific source to build a truly comprehensive
view of our meaningful relationship with nature. The dictionary of birds, animals, insects and amphibians is invaluable.
Each Book/Author is assigned a source number. Number notations throughout the hummingbird information articles refer to these resources:
