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!

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!
