Here’s my Hummer of the day! I almost feel like apologizing for all the Hummers, but they are going mad with the Crocosmias and I have to follow suite!

This is a Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) female.

Goldie

A dominant American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) male perched on a branch. I say dominant becuase he spends half his day chasing away other Goldies from the feeders in our yard!

Tuckered Out

A female fledgling House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) has had a busy day. Just new to this world she’s learning how to get around. But, all the activicty has worn her out and she has a little rest in a Hawthorne bush. That big thorn will definitely stop her from tipping to the right!

Who, Who Are You!

A adult Barred Owl (Strix varia) came out to visit us along the edge of the trail on our afternoon hike. We heard that it was in the area, and we very lucky to see it! I’m pleased as it’s a lifer for me!
