The Females Rule Okay

So I've gotten used the the absence of male hummingbirds...

...and I am enjoying the interaction of the female Rufous (left) and Anna's (right).

I have at least four birds - two Anna's...

...and as this photo proves, two Rufous.

The birds are active at my front feeders, but in the back, they are all about the agastaches. 

Salvias, fuchsias, agastaches - all are great hummingbird magnets.

Nectar from a fucshia.

Keeping watching over the feeders.
"Don't you try any funny business missy!"

And after all of that, this guy showed up!

A male Anna's Hummingbird.

Thanks for stopping by Pretty Boy.

Here are a couple more Fantastic Females...
Tuesday morning a female Yellow Warbler came by...

...and after she left, I heard this bird.

Thankfully it peered out from the blackberries.

And I could see that it was a female Bullock's Oriole!

They have a unique chatter / song and that is what made me look up from reading my book.

I have an oriole nectar feeder, and while the bird came close by she did not come to the feeder.

I hope she comes by again.

Bring your mate and kids!

Very nice! I will never be anything but jealous of people who have hummers in their garden!
