Sunday's Hummers

In the past week or so, the number of hummers I have has declined.
I think many of the Rufous Hummingbirds have begun their southern migration. 

Thankfully, I still have Anna's Hummingbirds... this lovely lady... 

...and this handsome gentleman.

I'm very pleased to have a mature male back at the feeders.

See how his entire head and throat are pinky/red?

Now compare with this juvenile male Anna's.  He is just beginning to get some color.

There is at least one young Rufous still in the area.

I believe this might be a juvenile male.

I think there is just a touch of color forming on the throat.

And this is a female Rufous - so two birds still.

Ya' got an itch?  Then scratch it!
