Bird Action in the Backyard

May 23, 2019


Sometimes you can get lucky and capture and an interesting image just by chance.



I was photographing the bird on the left, which I believe is a young California Towhee.

It was late afternoon, and the bird rested for about ten minutes on a branch of a crabapple tree.

While I took pictures of it, two Anna's Hummingbirds suddenly flew past the towhee.



The towhee is ducking down on the branch.

It looked like the hummingbirds were chasing each other and weren't interested in the towhee.











And here the two hummingbirds fly around the towhee, who is sitting upright on the branch.
