The daily bird.


Birds are a favorite of many people, so I thought a daily bird would be a nice place to share pictures of those that I have seen. The male Anna's Hummingbird wil be a good start.

A very nice start, indeed, a real beauty!
Looking forward to seeing your daily posts, K.

We only ever see the Ruby-throated hummers out here in coastal NC, but I never tire of them.

Perhaps if I have the male and female I should put both in. I have put them in a web page so I will try to just add the bigger image. Lets try the female Anna's.

They are beautiful! I don't think they visit here either, even though we get several different hummingbirds passing through and hanging around.
