One of my favorite quasi-rock ballads from way back is “Hummingbird,” by Leon Russell. But in one sentence, I digress. What I really want to point out today is a cool posting by the son of one of my long-distance riding partners, Rob. The lad hung a hummingbird feeder just outside his bedroom window (he fashioned a perch and the from old bike spokes). Then he started taking pictures, and came up with some pretty amazing closeup shots. I’m confident I’m the first person on the Internets to link to his page.

  1. Those are gorgeous pics of lovely, “fearless and pugnacious” little birds. Those Anna’s Hummingbirds resemble our Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds and they are surely close variants of each other. That quote is one of my favorites. It’s from Golden’s A Guide to Field Identification: Birds of North America.
