For a number of years now I have had a pair stay year round. When it freezes I bring the feeders in at night so they will have food in the morning. It's amazing how these little guys can survive the coldest days here. It's great fun seeing Hummers in the winter.

There are a couple of these pretty little guys who've have staked out my neighbour's feeder and her geranium as their territory. The male serenades everyone most mornings, and he flits past my head on occasion, sounding like an enormous bee. :) Lovely colours on these flitters, too.
I've been lucky in that he's mellow enough to allow me to get within a few feet of him to take his picture! My photos aren't super high-quality, but you definitely get the "character" of this bird!

I have had one male reserve my back yard as his for the last 11 months. His mother had my back yard before he did. I have photos of the mother feeding him when he first learned to fly. He has leaned to tolerate my presents and has become quite bold like flying into the house when I'm refilling one of the feeders and hovers around watching my every move. Now he has let a female hummer into my yard. February 23, 2011, I photographed them mating! She is now pregnant. I am still searching for the nest, as I follow them to a tree 30 yds away. I will download some photos of the happy couple!

Living in the mountains not far from Yosemite, I have Anna's year round. The males start attracting a mate in November and December, flashing their red, even during a snow storm. They breed early in the year mostly to avoid the aggressive Rufus Hummingbird. Most females nest mid-January to mid-April. I am keeping my feeders out all year.
