Anna's hummingbird in the drizzle

December 2, 2019

 

It's been raining non-stop for several days now.

During the heavy showers the birds are hunkering down in the trees.

But when the rain is light, the birds venture out.

 

This afternoon I observed this Anna's hummingbird visit the Chiapas salvia shrub for nectar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Chiapas salvia is a beautiful year-round bloomer here in coastal Northern California.

As long as the stems are cut when the blossoms are dried up, the plant will keep producing more lovely magenta colored blooms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The hummer's bottom looks so soft and fluffy.

Considering the wet weather it seems like a miracle that birds can stay dry.
