One Incredible Bird!

                       A brief report of the life and Habitat of the Anna's Hummingbird!
Measuring only 3-4 inches in length, and 5 inches in wingspan, the Anna's Hummingbird is one incredible bird. It's voice is shrill, and high pitched. Sometimes the Anna's Hummingbird makes sharp squeak sounds through its mouth, and nose. 

Located mostly in the Pacific Northwestern area of the United States, the Anna's Hummingbird is most commonly seen in the spring, and summer. The Anna's Hummingbird stays mostly in the western interior valley, and coastal range, but can also be seen in southern interiors during the winter.

The Anna's Hummingbird stays mostly in the woodlands, and riparian areas, but, it can also be seen frequently in farmlands and gardens. The Anna's Hummingbird also enjoys the   habitat of the coastal scrublands, where food is present, in flowers or feeders. On the branch of a tree or shrub bush, the Anna's hummingbird makes a small round nest, and fills it with soft downy material and spiders webs.

While perching for feeder, the Anna's Hummingbird sips nectar with its long tongue, but still maintains a close eye on it's surroundings. The Anna's Hummingbird gleans it's food from eating small insects, and sucking nectar from flowering plants and shrubs. The Anna's hummingbird is a very territorial bird, so it only tolerates other hummingbirds when food is plentiful, and easy to find.

Some interesting facts about the Anna's Hummingbird would be that it can hover in the air, and dive very quickly with precision and speed. The gorgeous green and white tones of the Anna's feathers, are starkly complemented by the flash of pink that can be seen when the Hummingbird passes through the sunlight. The Anna's Hummingbird is truly one amazing, incredible little bird, created by one magnificent God!

"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind." Job 12:7-10
