Here’s a male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) in the Honeysuckle. A moment before he had two other Hummers looking for a showdown! My boy was the successful one in that duel!

Confused

An Immature male Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) flew in a couple of days ago. He is still looking quite confused as to what he’s supposed to do. Usually when he flies in, the little bird fly away and leave him to guess at his next move. He’ll soon catch on!
