i love these pictures.... one of the saddest parts of our year here in SE Alaska.. all of the songbirds head out and the land is quiet of bird sounds..  ^j)

then april it sounds like a zoo aviary with all the bird song again. I guess it all part of our dark winter..  8)

And that is a beautiful hummingbird variety! I know you have several varieties where you are, we only have the Ruby Throated hummingbird here.

Great pics, Miner.
Do you spend a lot of time to get the right shot, or do you have some smart scouting- or wildlife camera on stand-by ???

I almost always have a camera with me. All those shots, though, were taken from my back deck while I was eating breakfast.
