Guest photographer Denny Barnes brings us some hummingbirds today. His description:
I had one little Rufous male that stayed here all winter but about a week ago the Anna’s showed up, mostly all females and they’ve pretty well taken over. The Rufous had the feeder all to himself and now he can hardly get to it. I have two feeders out now, one quart each and they almost empty them daily. Last year it took over 50lbs of sugar to keep them happy.
Whoa that’s a lot of sugar. I started trying to attract hummingbirds in my yard last year, after seeing a couple flittering around. I don’t think I quite realized what I might be in for. Thanks, Denny!
