Art Requirements Plants/Hummingbirds for 2013 HummerBirdCelebration Artwork

 

The following are the preferred plants and hummingbirds we would like to see in any 2013 HummerBird Celebration artwork.  These are the plants most likely to be found in our area and the ones most likely to be visited as a nectar source for the hummingbirds. 

The list of hummingbirds is also a list of hummingbirds normally found in our migration. The size of the artwork should be 10 inches wide by 8 inches tall so that it will fit on a t-shirt.  Art with a full painted background will not be selected.
