They typically show up here, two miles into the Coast Range, 25 miles nw of downtown Portland, on March 16. We have no Anna's so the feeder is not out. A Rufous Hummingbird will appear at the spot a feeder hung from the eaves all the previous years, sometimes in the falling snow.

He already runs the joint - poor Annas! I have about 14 feeders spread out on my property as I'm trying to build my population. He must have remembered me from last year, and that I lots to offer. I've already seen him on all of my dominant male Annas feeders! Trying to get a picture...
