Anna's Hummingbird

Tuesday, 14 Apr 2009
Red Cliffs Campground
Washington County, Utah


There is a cooperative male Anna's Hummingbird hanging around at Red Cliffs Campground, Washington Co, UT. Actually there is a female as well, nesting in the cottonwoods along the creek, but she is very difficult to find. The male however, likes to show off and is usually singing and displaying south of the loop road. It usually is perched on one of several desert almonds or creosote bushes in 'a bowl' area south of the loop road (on the left shortly after passing the entrance kiosk). I took some photos last week and will try and send Milt a few to post on the Utah Birds website.

Also Costa's Hummingbirds are currently frequenting the penstemons and feeders in our front yard. The Sommerfelds and Paul H. were able to stop by this weekend. If others would like to drop by and watch for the hummingbirds (or Hooded Orioles and Inca Doves) let me know and I can provide directions.
