Anna's Hummingbird

I've had a couple of inquiries about my hummingbird. It's an Anna's Hummingbird. They are a breed that don't migrate south in the winter, so we are lucky to see them year round. They are fun to see as there feathers are irridescant.

There are also Black Phoebes that visit our yard in the morning. They sit up on a brick wall that is about 2 feet high and then swoop down and hover above the grass for a few seconds and fly back up to the wall over and over again. I think they must be catching bugs that fly around the grass. What a way to get a meal! Guess I shouldn't complain about having to cook.

I'd like to say I knew all this information before I was asked. I have to admit I did an Internet search of "Pleasanton California hummingbird" and there it was. I love the Internet for research!
