Hummingbirds feather their nests

The Salinas Californian, March 2013

The soft fluttering of tiny green wings is a pleasant reminder of the Monterey Bay area’s hummingbird inhabitants. Whether you spot a crimson and emerald Anna’s hummingbird living here year-round or one of the orange rufous hummingbirds that cruise into California’s Central Coast during the spring, seeing a hummingbird is always a treat.
