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!


Mine, Mine!

The Pine Siskins (Spinus pinus) are enjoying our two tray feeders with Niger seed in them. They pack onto the edges. Inveriably as with Finches there is lots of chattering and the odd you show me yours and I’ll show you mine!


Bright & Shiny

A Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) looking bright and shiny in his Spring Colours. Presious jewels in our natural world

A pretty little Black-headed Grosbeak immature male, checks out the action at the feeder. We have had quite a brood of these lovely birds this year.  Mum & Dad were definitely busy!


Great Backdrop

A House Finch hen on one of our feeders.  I thought his was a great backdrop.  The bird feeder was there before the flower, which is a Rose of Sharon.
