Anna's Hummingbird

On the front porch this morning this female Anna’s Hummingbird stretches for some of the last nectar of the season from the fuchsia hanging basket.  The little aggressive Rufous Hummingbirds who dominated the area through the summer have now left for destinations south for the winter, most probable Central America. Now the larger, but more humble Ann’s have the feeders and flowers to themselves, which brings up a point, if you hang a feeder during the summer, consider leaving it up through the winter for our year around residents the Ann’s Hummingbird.
