Having a Bath

It seems our Hummers have been absent for a little while. Maybe off having babies! But, they are back and I’m happy to see them. This is a female Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna)

I hadn’t seen my Hummers for a week or so, but they both showed up today. This is the male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) flashing his colours!


New Boy

Here’s a new boy to the neighbourhood. The weather has been mild so he may be checking out other yards, as they stay pretty close to their feeders this time of the year. He’s a rather stern looking Anna’s Hummingbird male, (Calypte anna) and he’s perched on a Rose of Sharon Bush.


January Hum

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!


My Girl

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!


Winter Hum

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 Hummer for the Day

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!


Sitting Pretty

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.

Hummer of the day

This is a young male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) sitting on a Crocosmia plant while attempting the feed. They have the habit of pushing their bill through the flower to get at the juice! He needs a bit of practice!
