A hummingbird cottage in the Zoo: Looking for a respite from the crowds at the San Diego Zoo? There’s a sweet little home for hummingbirds tucked just beyond the reptile house and across from the Skyfari launch. (It’s tough to find on the zoo map, only marked with a small picture of a hummingbird.) Inside, amongst the tropical plants, water features, and bird feeders, the birds zip around, eat, and bathe in the pools. Enjoy the western sparkling violet-ear and the northern broad-billed.
