Anna's Hummingbird, East Flagstaff
In addition to the surprise of 7 inches of snow on the ground when I woke up this morning, there was the surprise of a male Anna's Hummingbird sitting in the peach tree just outside my kitchen window. I hung a hummingbird feeder in the tree a few days ago, but I wouldn't have guessed the first bird would show up in a snowstorm!

I actually had a male Broad-tailed show up a couple of years ago during a snowstorm. That surprised the heck out of me.

I did get 2 beautiful Western Bluebirds that showed up this morning. This gives me an excuse to post the pics.

RE: Anna's Hummingbird, East Flagstaff
Checking various records, the Anna's Hummingbird observation on 23 March was my earliest hummingbird record of any species in my yard (beating the previous early-date Broad-tailed Hummingbird by 1 day). It is also the only eBird record for Anna's Hummingbird the entire month of March in the Flagstaff area.
