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.

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!

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.


Rufous

This sweet little female Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) likes to stop at our rain chain for a drink of water and a little rest.

Welcome back

If you didn’t know, Hummingbirds are my all time favourites! I have a huge passion for birds, but Hummers are on the top of the list. We had Anna’s Hummingbirds ( Calypte anna) us all winter. We fed them and gave them a dry place to perch. This little guy is the first of the Rufous Hummingbirds (Selasphorus rufus)we have seen this year in our yard. Or anywhere else for that matter. I look into his eyes and wonder where he was all winter. Anyway, welcome back Mr. Rufous
