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)

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.
