Just a couple days left of 2010, a good year for watching orioles and hummingbirds!
While hummer watching this afternoon, it became clear why the new feeding post (with 2 favored feeder types) is not getting much action. I should have expected, there is a very territorial male Anna's shooing off any mooching interloper getting near.
I saw a very sharp looking male Costa's hummer at one of the feeders, vibrant dark blue-violet neck and long back swooping 'sideburns'. It is supposed to be very rainy tomorrow, I hope to get a photo of him if he is still around after the rain.
