It has been a long time since my last post. I’ve been trying to figure out what type of hummingbird this is. According to the bird book I received for my birthday, there are very subtle distinctions between those indigenous to this region. Calliope, Costa’s, Anna’s, Rufous…then there are variations between juvenile, subadult, adult, each differing depending on gender. It’s enough to drive a person crazy. But I’m settling on Anna’s, because I need to move on.
