Subject: Anna's hummingbird- still here 😊
Hi everyone

For all of you who have been inquiring- yes, the adult male Anna's is still
here. However, he ventures out and about away from his primary feeder a
little more time each day. And he has been using a different feeder at
dusk the past few evenings- and spending up to 5 minutes drinking. This is
a behavior the regular RTHU hummers in the yard show just before migrating
either in the fall or spring. While the RTHUs in the yard are exhibiting
various stages of molt - from body feathers to retrices to primaries (but
not gorget feathers yet), he is not molting at all.

So, who knows how much longer he will stay- but he sure is beautiful!
