As Small as a Hummingbird

Living in California I have the pleasure of seeing hummingbirds everyday. I keep a feeder close to a window for a good view as they come up to feed. It cracks me up watching turf wars between these little birds over who gets to feed and who is breaking in on our main male’s territory.

The hummingbirds most commonly seen in our area are Annas. The Males have full red heads and the females have a little spot of red under their chin. You can only see this red when they flash these scale like feathers at the sun. Otherwise the areas look black.

I loved the idea of a dinosaur like hummingbird.
