It's that time of year again. The time when I dig the hummingbird feeders out, clean them up and fill them with ruby-sweet hummingbird food. It's usually not long after we put them out that the speedy little buggers show up and stay with us until the fall. This annual ritual got me thinking about hummingbird songs. Our tiny avian friends are a great device for songwriters to use since they're beautiful, delicate and elusive. For this playlist I've included my favorite 10 songs that use hummingbirds in the song title, or somewhere in the lyrics. Even if you're not a fan of hummingbirds you may love this playlist as it's loaded with great songs.
