2022—Somebody Up There?

The male Anna’s Hummingbird who has laid claim to my garden is on constant vigil. He seems to wonder if somebody up there is out to get him. Whenever he is in one place for more than a second, he looks up to see what might be lurking above his head, even when he’s hovering near the feeder. I’ve only seen one other hummer in the garden recently and it was a female, although before this guy showed up, the females had the upper hand. Maybe he’s not too sure of his status.
