Real Estate Gabriola Island, BC

The Gabriola Blog

We recently purchased the best hummingbird feeder ever. It doesn’t leak, it holds plenty of solution, there is a moat to stop the ants and the perching rail is fully utilized by the birds and makes them easy to watch. We have two kinds that visit our feeder, Anna’s Hummingbird and Rufous Hummingbird. Both are beautiful but I find the adult male Rufous to be most spectacular with his burnished copper colored body and bright red throat. We haven’t fully figured out if this is a female Rufous or an Anna’s Hummingbird in the photo but we are enchanted just the same.
