Small Bird

Here’s a cute little Bush Tit.  I think that these birds are the smallest we have, except for the Hummingbirds of course.  Bush Tits are very sociable.  They are always in a group of ten or more it seems, and they flit in and just as soon are gone.

At Dusk

Here’s our little Anna’s Hummingbird male sitting a a bungee cord we have put up for the birds to perch on.  It stretches between two feeders.  They all seem to quite like it.  Including this little guy!  This was right at dusk and the light was poor.  I think Mama Hummer had gone to bed.  She usually doesn’t let him sit unmolested for long!
