On Monday (21st) we went back to the garden as we woke up to sunshine and cooler temperatures. It was 64 degrees when we left the house. In today's post I am sharing Gregg's photos of the hummingbird we saw.
I don't know my hummingbirds very well, so perhaps someone who does can name this one. It seems to have little white tips on the end of its tail feathers.
I have cropped each photo and put the cropped version below the original.
Not necessarily about this particular one, the red lettering will take you to an interesting field guide here.Added note: thank you Eileen, Debbie and Martha for ID'ing this pretty bird as a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. You can read their comments below this post.
Below you can see the flowers this little hummer was so interested in. I am pretty sure it is the Lobelia laxiflora var angustifolia, also Sierra Madre Lobelia. A very hardy flower and easy to grow.
