April is showering where I live, and my Spring Fever is raging. The birds around my home are turning up the volume, and I am on the prowl to locate and identify them. This task has become more difficult now that the bare winter branches are decked out in fresh spring greenery.
First thing this morning, as I stood on the porch meditating on my surroundings after a week away, I heard a familiar humming and clicking. I wandered around until I spotted a hummingbird feeding on the blooming groundcover that surrounds the cabin. The lavendar flowers are just the ticket for a bird with a suitable bill.
I took several photos before I got close enough to capture a couple of decent shots. I just love hummingbirds. They have such cute little feet. This one appears to be a female Anna’s. I hope there is a nearby nest. I will be listening and watching, so this story is just beginning.
