Both of today's images are of young male Anna's Hummingbirds. The first photo showing a bit of that creaky gate singing and the lower image in mid groom. These young males hatched earlier this year are beginning to get their adult plumage.
Could this Retail Hawk be our beloved Little Eagle? He circled in the sky right above me this morning and talked to me in a loud voice. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

A slice of sunlight illuminates this fellow's back a brilliant green
Steller's Jay is a peanut grabbing beast! :D
Todays Hummingbird images are dedicated to the fine folks at Michell Valley Plants! For the past few years they have provided all my bird friendly plants and flowers , and organic fertilizers to make them flourish.
Thank you ever so much for your help establishing my gardens...
The birds just think you are awesome too!!!
I hear there is currently a big plant sale at Michell Valley Plants, so head down for some Fall bargains before they close for the season.
Look for the big plant display behind Michell's Market on Island View Road and #17 Hwy.
I saw 100's of Swallows today
This bird came close enough for me to get a few photos...
