Look who's skulking in the maple, in the rain.
Young Anna's Hummingbird, one of several that have been around all summer. The Rufous Hummingbirds seem to have left, but the non-migrant Anna's(s) linger. Will they overwinter here, in our yard? I'll keep the feeders full for as long as they want.
They had a rough week last week; the roof was being reshingled and there was stuff flying all over the place--cedar shingles, sheets of tar paper, pitch forks. (They use pitch forks to tear off the old shingles, and at the end of the process hurl them from the roof like tridents.) (Heads up!) I had to take the feeders down.
Now the roof is done, and it is raining. I.e., back to normal.
