Besides the Calliope Hummingbird that showed up on March 8, I’ve had Rufous, Allen’s Costa’s and a few Black-chinned Hummingbirds at the feeders in my backyard. This represents all of the species that we usually get in San Diego County. Rare but possible is the Broad-billed Hummingbird from Arizona. Long shots are the Lucifer or Magnificent Hummingbirds.

This week I’ve had a constant parade of orioles – hooded and Bullock’s migrants as well as the resident Scott’s – visiting my orange and hummingbird feeders. Almost like Madera Canyon in SE Arizona.
