2023—Looking Forward

My camera is always nearby when I am at home so that when the Hummingbirds are feeding or the Bushtits are bathing, I can grab it and go outside to photograph them. I am feeling very nostalgic about the birds that visit and live in my garden because within a week, I’ll have moved away from them. As fall gets underway, the late blooming flowers are putting on quite the show. The California Fuchsia is in full bloom, enticing this female Anna’s Hummingbird to sample every open blossom. I am encouraged that new hummers will find me when I move. On Sunday, I showed my new home to my friend Moose who was in town for an aviation event and while we were on the patio, two Anna’s Hummingbirds visited a Lantana blooming in the garden. So, while I’ll be sad to say goodbye to the birds that have thrived here for many generations, I look forward to meeting all of the birds at my new home.
