Here’s our little Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) sitting on her favourite winter perch. Close by to the feeders. She looked very pretty today as the sky was a bit lighter and no rain!

We have a pair of Anna’s Hummingbirds (Calypte anna) that are still with us at the end of November. Both of them were sitting on this branch but I only got her!

Here’s my little buddy the male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna). Seems he has choosen his Winter perch on our Rose of Sharon bush. He spent the day today going from this perch to the feeder. It’s been cold and windy, and more! It snowed yesterday. He’s definitely a Snow Hummer!

A female Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) at one of our feeders. The Hummers were quite active today. Don’t know if it’s because of the final passing of our last storm or a forerunner to our next storm coming in!

On a cool, rainy day, this male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) was sitting on this branch close to the feeder and under cover from the rain.
