I hadn’t seen my Hummers for a week or so, but they both showed up today. This is the male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) flashing his colours!
This male House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) sitting in a tangle of branches seems to be giving me the stink eye! Don’t blame him, I’d be miserable sitting out in the pouring rain too!
A Northern Pintail (Acer acuta) looking very handsome as he swims through some greenery on the water.
Two pair of Mallards (Anas platyrhychos) Probably the most familiar duck in the world. They are litterally everywhere and do pretty well everywhere they go.
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.
A red shafted male Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus) perched in a Rose of Sharon Bush is waiting for his turn at the Suet feeder! We currently have four of these beauties visiting out feeders!
