Most of January and now half of February has been pretty mild - weatherwise. This may change a little this week as rain and a cool down are supposed to be on the way. But this morning the weather is fine, 77 degrees out by the main feeder area.
One of the elder guys, if not the old guy, is hanging out next to his feeder chasing off anyone that might have thoughts of pilfering from his territory.
Here is a photo of one of the hummers with backlighting and wings a blur.
This is a manzanita in full bloom, as small as the flowers are, the hummers like them for a treat.
The orioles should be a month or so away - they were here March last year.
Thanks for commenting Garrett, hope you saw my response.
