For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: spring.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: bold.
Yesterday felt so spring like. I wandered around the neighborhood taking pictures. These are in a pot on my front stoop. I curled up in the sun in my lower yard and took a nap for an hour in the sun as well.

I am not in a city. I am in a town. But still, when the flock shows up at my feeder, I feel such joy watching them.
No snow now, but the Anna’s hummingbirds were guarding the feeder most of the time when it was cold, especially when I would thaw it. One especially cold hungry day, it dive bombed me when I went to wrap a warm towel around the feeder to warm it up. Fierce little birds!
But it also did the behavior pictured. I think it’s beak cleaning, but it sure looks like sharpening. Just like sharpening a knife.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: diurnal.
I think this is a female Anna’s hummingbird.
