Everyone said: “There are no hummingbirds here in the middle of winter.”
Nevertheless, I persisted. Voila: the hummer. I was thrilled. She visited 4 times in less than an hour. At the last, it was almost dark. We’ve had some weather, so I wonder if she came in with the north wind. My best guess is a female Anna’s or black-chinned.
When I did an eBird checklist on it, eBird said it was rare for this time of year and asked me to add details to my report.
