2022—A Dominant Anna

One of the female Anna’s Hummingbirds that live in my garden visited the feeder while I sat outside with my camera. But first, she chased another female away. I thought only the males dominated the feeders but this Anna has obviously claimed this feeder as her own. There are almost no flowers in bloom in my garden except for a couple of fading blossoms on the Pineapple Sage in the background so the feeders are a necessary filling station for the hummers until I get my spring garden in shape. We have had rare freeze warnings this past week so I put off adding any delicate plants until things warm up a bit.
