Above slides .. A male Rufous Hummingbird in the Plum tree ... My 1st sighting for 2022!
Female Anna's Hummingbird takes a rest inbetween nesting duties ... These little wonders can often have 2 nests per year and I have seen documents saying one female had 6 broods (almost always 2 eggs and 2 young to tend) The Anna's began diligently gathering nesting materials around the end of January and that activity was heightened throughout February. Some will be now feeding youngsters and others will still be hatching eggs.
This handsome dude was observed sampling Plum blossoms today (Male House Finch)
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
