Back to humming

The bald eagles' nest is mostly quiet this week. Dad has kept the earlier brood away from the nest and Mom is getting ready for the new hatchlings.

Meanwhile both Anna's and rufous hummingbirds are frequenting the front porch birdie spa.

I have two feeders separated by two hanging flower baskets. The male and female rufous each visit their favorite feeder. The Anna's visited one feeder briefly, then I didn't see him again. The female spent quite a bit of time at the feeders or camping in the vine maple below the feeders. 

None of them paid attention to the flowers although I have several hummer favorites growing. 

See my Hummers Gallery for my favorites.
