MY LITTLE VISITOR

There are two hummingbirds who fly around together in my gardens, often hovering to peek in the window at me.  They seem to enjoy each others company.  Today one seemed very tired and sat for about a half hour just 2 feet from the window and did not seem frightened at all by my nearby presence, I grabbed my camera and began taking photos through the window.  Here are the few shots that came out.  I enjoy their presence every day and it gives me a little lift of my heart.
He/she had pale green feathers along its back. On his neck he had some red and golden feathers.
I do not know what type of hummingbird it is. It seemed to look right at me.
 
The sun kept coming and going from behind clouds floating above.
I enjoyed my little visitor and it made me smile. Haven't done that in a while.

  2. Well the true birders can tell you for sure, but it does look ruby-throated to me. What a delight! So glad they made you smile.

  3. Oh Rose, how lovely these photos are; you haven't lost your magic touch! Maybe you're like this humming bird; you need only to rest a little while before you fly into action! ~ Alice

  4. I am pretty sure it is a juvenile anna's hummingbird. I'm glad it brightened your day. Be well.

  5. My friend Esther and I think this is a female or juvenile Anna's hummingbird.

  6. I wonder if this isn't an immature male ana's?

  7. What amazes me is how fluffy it looks. I always think of hummers as being very sleek. What a wonderful visit! I also never think of hummingbirds as perching for more than a second or two. WOW!

  8. Recovery can't keep you down! Very unusual pictures. I haven't seen anything like them, even in the hummingbird issue of Birds and Bloom. You should submit them and see what happens. Keep up that good spirit, while we keep up our prayers for your rapid recovery. Lynnette

  9. I'm pretty sure it's a non-breeding male Anna's. They lose most of their brilliant magenta head feathers about this time of year. Females and juveniles don't have the red feathers.

  16. Hi Rose! I've been away a while, but hoping to stop by more regularly. How are you doing? Hoping your recover is good and you are getting around well now! Beautiful photos. I guess I didn't realize that some hummingbird are fluffy. I suppose I've never seen one stop! So special to have it sit for a photography session :) Blessings to you, Cindy xo
