Anna’s Hummingbirds () are still buzzing around our garden. We usually have some hummingbirds that remain here during the winter so I leave my feeders up until I don’t see any hummers for several weeks. Click on photos for full sized images.

This female was feeding at a Cardinal Climber (Ipomoea quamoclit pennata) my wife planted along the garden fence.

Hummingbird feeders are great, but if you want birds in your yard year round, you will want to plant landscaping that attracts birds.

I have listed some informative links for bird friendly landscaping and hummingbird specific plant selections at the end of this post.
