Mr. and Mrs. Hummingbird

There are two hummingbirds hanging out in the yard. They've been around as long as we've lived here but we've seen a lot more of them lately. We think Mr. Hummingbird has a white collar and sits up high on the wisteria and Mrs. Hummingbird is shiny green and sits down lower on the wisteria. But we're not sure. It has been fun keeping track of them the last few days. Yesterday I was outside washing the window by the feeder and Mr. Hummingbird told me off and flew away. Those little guys sure are vocal !

Mr. Hummingbird (?)

Hey look, an airplane.

Definitely not malnourished.

Mrs. Hummingbird (?)

Always look both ways before crossing the yard. First look to the left...

..and then to the right.

You guys are so lucky! Since we're at 1200 ft. we only get them seasonally. I've heard that if you leave your feeder up year-round that they will stay. It didn't work for us, but it looks like it worked at your house. I'm guessing they are either Anna's or Rufus.

Have a wonderful holiday, guys!
