I have a new little buddy who is a very young male Anna’s Hummingbird, he has staked a claim on my feeder and sits upon a leafless branch of my plum tree and guards it until dark ( his only competition is an older male, but not much older) I have tried to photograph him but he’s so damn fast! He lets me get just 2-3 ft. away from him when I’m on my porch! He once buzzed around my head as I stood behind the feeder, not fearing, but clicking at me like I was competition…. I don’t think he’s figured out I’m the one that feeds him! I’m hoping he stays the winter!
Almost dark, he still sits and guards!
