Hummingbirds after the Rain

•August 20, 2014 • Leave a Comment

I think the hummingbird above might be a broad-billed, I know the photo is really bad but if you look closely the birds beak looks red, like a broad-billed. I guess white-eared hummers have a red beak too but they are very rare in these parts. Anyway what ever it is, it is something I don’t see much, a hummer with a red beak.

I think the female shown above is an anna’s, they are the most common in our yard. This little gal was quite hungry, she visited the feeder several times.

I think the female shown above is an anna’s or maybe a black-chinned. I have a hard time telling them apart.

I think the bird above is a rufous, they pass through in the spring and fall.

I don’t know why but I seem to have the hardest time trying to figure out which hummer is which, they all look so much the same to me, though different. When I try to look them up I can not figure out what the defining factors are. Maybe someone passing by here reading can give me some tips. :)

Every so often I post close up photo of something I have seen lately. I put that photo at the top of my post, I post the full photo of the last close up at the bottom of the post. Here is this weeks photo… Guess what this is!

The answer to the last post is…

Light switch

You know you sometimes if you look at things to closely it is really hard to figure out what they are, but then again if you only look at things from a distance, you can miss the important and interesting details. It is also often easy to get swayed by what someone else thinks/guesses.
