I'm starting to think this one is not the same as the previous one--and is the one I constantly see trying to feed under the feeders. Steve, I'm thinking you are right that she (?) hasn't figured out how to feed at the feeder. The one in all the previous pictures never hesitated to feed at the station and use (or not use) the perch when feeding. This one went around and under, then left. I'll have to watch and see if when I see her flying around and around the other feeder if I ever see her feed or leave and perhaps the other one come who knows how to use it.

Hope she figures it out. Linda, these photos are just wonderful. You are so lucky to have Anna's Humingbirds in your yard.

I had so much fun watching them all day. It was a gorgeous day. Cold in the morning and nearly warm in the afternoon in comparison so it was like two different days for the birds. They really fed a lot and the little hummingbirds even came to the flower feeder beside my desk and I enjoyed watching that feeder too. Truly a miracle day with the hummingbirds. :)

Your great photos make me want to run out to the garage and put up my feeder near the window! I am afraid it would go untouched however. Your photos are great - you don't need a telephoto lens when you can get them to come this close! The detail in these photos is amazing - normally not seen by the eyes because of the movement of the birds. Great Christmas present!!

These pictures are great, Linda! Since we have hummingbirds only in the warmest months, it looks so odd to me to see the hummingbird and the ice in such close proximity. You'll have so much fun watching these interesting creatures!

Swann, I was out the other day to check a feeder and heard those wings. I think one of my little friends (maybe Mimosa) was feeding at the window feeder and went back into the tree. Sounds like a very large bumblebee. :)
