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.
Beautiful shots of my best friends!
Yes, they are indeed your best friends! At least they let me visit! 🙂 🙂
Thank you! Aren’t they wonderful? 🙂 🙂
They really are!
If we had those in our garden, I feel sure I would be watching them constantly. Lovely photos.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks, Pete! Me too! I’d never seen that variety before and had to look them up. 🙂
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!
