Saturday - Having a Drink


It's the weekend. Let's have a drink!

Female Anna's Hummingbird

Male Anna's Hummingbird sipping nectar.

Note the yellow pollen 'dusting' is beak - that's how he functions as a pollinator. 

Keep up the good work!

Male Lesser Goldfinch (old camera - a bit blurry) 

Female Black-headed Grosbeak - note how much clearer this photo is with my replacement camera. 

Male House Finch

Party at the Watering Hole!

Male California Quail

And while my Male Rufous Hummingbird does come to the feeders once in a while for a drink, he's very hard to catch there.  Much easier to get a photo from his look-out atop a young Douglas Fir.

Your bird photos are beautiful. We are getting more birds in our garden now but I don't always manage to get photos!
