More Allen's H'birds
- 2 March 2010 - Just confirmed the first female Allen's at one of the
feeders. Yesterday there were four orange males at different places
around the yard (presumably all Allen's, but I only saw the green backs
on two of them).
Also noted one Golden-Crowned Sparrow with black and gold head.
Forgot to report a few days ago, I saw two Red-Tailed Hawks copulating
on a power pole. Spring is definitely in the air!
Middle Ridge, Albion
- 25 February 2016 (Thursday) - Hearing the distinctive ringing buzz of Selasphorus males, I spent a few minutes this afternoon surveying the garden. In about 15 minutes, I counted nine (9) Allen's Hummingbirds; eight adult males, and one apparent female.
In the same area were only 4 Anna's, 3 males and one female, where there were about 12 just 2 weeks ago. No Rufous yet, unless one was hiding from me, which is possible.
I last surveyed this area closely on Sunday the 21st and there were no Selasphorus present then.
