Remembering the Beautiful Allen’s Hummingbirds

Another cold and rainy day in the Pacific Northwest and the blue skies and sunshine from Southern California are only a memory. Still memories are meant to be enjoyed, are they not?

I love hummingbirds and one of my favorite memories from our recent trip was discovering a new variety – the Allen’s Hummingbird.

This colorful species lives in a narrow strip along the Pacific Coast of California and southern Oregon. Some stay in southern California year-round though most spend the winter in Mexico.

I might do the same if only I could.

  1. If we had those in our garden, I feel sure I would be watching them constantly. Lovely photos.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Cute hummer! I haven’t seen one of my hummers for about a week now so I am going through withdrawal.

    • I was delighted to see a new variety, so colorful! I haven’t been watching for mine lately but I do occasionally see them feeding. They’re green so they blend in with the surroundings!
