Family of Hummingbirds Make The Hacienda Their New Home

The Hacienda at the River has welcomed its first outdoor residents… a family of hummingbirds! It all started out with our Horticulture Guide, Jason Welborn, noticing a tiny nest in our kumquat tree located in the courtyard at The Springs. A female hummingbird, known as a broad-billed hummingbird, built a nest and laid two small eggs. For days, she sat there, even while spectators wanted to get a peek. No one ever got too close to the nest to cause her alarm. Associates and residents have all gathered around to meet this beautiful family of hummingbirds, we consider them members of The Hacienda team!
