I've caught a chickadee and a nuthatch in my hands after they flew in the patio door and got stuck trying to fly out the closed living room windows. They are so amazingly light!

Are those Rufous or Anna's? (Or...?)

I was so surprised a few weeks ago when taking a photo of a penstemon type flower in a canyon at Capitol Reef--the only one I'd seen in that whole section of canyon--to be photobombed by a hummingbird. I imagined him/her high above all these canyons and zooming down to the flowers that seemed few and far between. But maybe they like the orchard blooms there too.

I believe they are all Black-chinned, but the females can be tricky. We also get Broad Tailed, and then Rufous in the late summer. And the occasional Calliope.


And I do wonder how spread out their patches are in some areas?
