Most hummingbirds have traveled south to Mexico, but a few “Anna’s” are still around, and they will spend the winter her.

Feeding on the picnic table. Very social, they like to be around people and animals. With friends like them, life in the bush is great ?
Some people ask if I am not lonely “up in the bush” ? I am just a few hundred meters on gravel road from a small airport. With all these friends, how can it be lonely ?
But, last night from around 5:30 AM the dog was barking, and every hour from then. When I finally got up and looked out, there was a small Black Bear, about two years old, no mother around, I think he wanted to befriend the dog, or any company. I would love to guide him to the creek where the salmon is now coming up to spawn. With the rain we had the last few days, there are plenty of salmon in the creeks, and easy catch for the Bears, but somebody has to show him how to catch them !
