Hummer Sandwich

An Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) male on a Honeysuckle vine in our yard. Sandwich, add one leaf, one hummer, one leaf!


Brown-headed Beauty

A Brown-headed Cowbird (Molothrus ater) here perched in a flowering bush, resplendant in his shiny Spring plumage.


Pretty in Red

A pretty male House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) in a tangle of branches of a Rose of Sharon bush.  I love to give these birds lots of attention.  They are so common that I think they are overlooked.  Much to pretty to be overlooked!


All Alone

A single Bushtit (Psaltriparus minimus). They usually stay together in flocks buzzing with activity. This is a Pacific morph and in his Sping colours is probably looking for a mate.


Bright & Shiny

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