California Hummingbird

While in California we visited Zora, whose yard was teeming with wildlife. She feeds many kinds of birds, as well as squirrels. This hummingbird is drinking out of one of four feeders in her yard she keeps filled with sugar water. The hummingbirds drink so much, she has to refill them several times a day. Sometimes, the bees steal a drink, too. You can see a couple of them in this picture, just to the right of the hummingbird.
