About the Hummingbird Garden Sits.
Relax with comfortable seating with either a western or eastern view (depending upon the time of day) in Adirondack chairs or cushioned patio furniture. A well-visited birdbath with a fountain attracts many species to drink or rinse. Many areas of the garden have shade, but it is still recommended that you protect yourself from the tropical sun.
The best times for garden sits are either early morning (generally 7:00 AM through 9:30 AM) or in the later afternoon (generally 3:30 through 5:30 PM).
Hummingbirds visit the garden from sunrise through sunset, but the early morning or later afternoon hours provide the best opportunities for viewing both species of hummingbirds as well as other Bonaire garden birds. The garden is filled with a variety of natural vegetation with flowers and which attracts both of Bonaire’s hummingbirds.
Other birds you may expect to see.
Other species visit the garden as well. It is common to see Tropical Mockingbirds, Pearly-eyed Thrashers (Bonaire has an isolated population), Yellow-shouldered Parrots, Brown-throated Parakeets, Bananaquits, Bare-eyed Pigeons, Eared Doves, Common Ground Doves, and Carib Grackles.
Occasionally, Yellow Warblers, Saffron Finches, White-tipped Doves, Scaly-naped Pigeons, Venezuelan Troupials, or Yellow Orioles make an appearance.
Riding thermals high in the sky one may find, depending upon the season, Ospreys, Magnificent Frigatebirds, Crested Caracaras, and Laughing Gulls.
