There are few experiences better than watching hummingbirds fly over a vineyard while sitting outside in the sunshine eating waffles. My wife and I have just been travelling through California for some much-needed rest and relaxation. We spent the last two days in the incredible Seven Quails vineyard (if you’re looking for accommodation near Paso Robles, stay there) and each morning, we delighted to see hummingbirds flitter between the trees of their back garden, against panoramic vistas of vines and rolling hills.
I’m assuming all of these photos are of the black-chinned hummingbird but if anyone has any other identification ideas, let me know. These photos are of Anna’s hummingbird. The money shots of the bird in flight were taken by my wife. The ones in the tree were me.
