I keep 3 feeders up and use 3:7 sugar:water. Everyone else is using 1:4 so I have all the local birds. I'm in Orange County so we have Anna's and Allen's all year. I've yet to get an Anna's with the full headgear. I just starting shooting them in 08, but the wife got sick so this is really the first year I'm shooting them on a regular basis. I expect a large crowd about the end of Feb and beginning of Mar. April is all the newbies. I've tried everything but studio lighting so, if you need any help, just ask.
Thank you! I believe it is found only in North America. It's an Anna's Hummingbird, and they can be found from Northern Baja California to San Francisco and apparently breed as far north as British Columbia, which is good for me. Eastern range might be as far east as Arizona. Not entirely sure on these facts - just going off the little handbook that I have.
