Great pictures Van, thanks for posting. We have been seeing our Ruby throated hummers since April 8th...males and females. Now mostly a female...think she might be nesting nearby, but like you a needle in a haystack with the forest around us.

We had the usual numbers of migratory Rufous Hummingbirds this year, arriving in March; they and the resident Anna's were in conflict over the feeders (and flowers) for much of the summer.

The Rufous have supposedly left now on their long journey back to Mexico and Central America - the feisty/flashy males leaving first. Even so, I am uncertain whether it was a female Rufous or Anna's that I managed to video on a lovely flowering Salvia.





This lovely 'Amistad' Salvia (Friendship Sage) was a recent acquisition and is visited frequently by the hummers. We are hopeful it will do very well in our garden, and the gardener is already planning on taking cuttings!
