My Little Buddy...

Male Anna's Hummingbird, Calypte anna, taking wing.  I dare say I'm pretty attached to these little birds.  Each morning, after their evening torpor, they swarm the feeders and again, as the sun sets, to store up enough food to survive the cool evenings.  Some nights there may be 15 or more of them.  They're smart enough to recognize the guy who fills the feeder (aka, me).  They will actually come up and look me in the eye and chirp at me.  Fascinating little birds.
