Anna's hummingbirds

The Anna's hummingbirds are here all year round.

Although we used to have a nectar feeder set up for them at our previous home, now that I planted a lot of nectar producing plants, it doesn't seem necessary to have the nectar feeder here.

They still visit the garden often, getting nectar from numerous salvia plants, the abutilon flowers, foxglove, lavender plants, the California bee plant, penstemons and the California fuchsia.

They also eat insects in the lemon tree.

The Anna's hummingbird here is sitting on a branch of a neighbor's crab apple tree.

And then suddenly spread its wings, preparing to take off.
