Anna's Hummingbird at feeder

I'm still not completely adjusted to the fact that the Anna's Hummingbird is becoming almost common in western Oregon in winter, but now that this female or immature male has taken up residence in my own yard, maybe it will be easier to accept. Originally the northern limit of their range was in the bay area of California, but now they are found as far north as Anchorage, Alaska. A very tough bird, considering that it weighs only about one-sixth of an ounce.

Wow, you actually got a shot of "him/her". How nice to have the honor of such a visitor!
