One day closer to spring

I didn't see a hummer all morning but early this afternoon I saw the female in the courtyard and a juvenile male (Anna's Hummingbird) at the habitat. Except the male didn't sing. At all. My theory is (I always have to have a theory) that when he arrived yesterday he was staking claim to his territory. Since his claim went unchallenged, he no longer needs to assert his claim. Here's a photo of him. I'm pretty sure it's the same bird, and pretty sure it's a male.

Other than that, deadsville. The pipit is still around, and so are a handful of White-crowned Sparrows. Other than that, just my usual year-round birds. Here's the American Pipit.
