Thank you for the information, Jeff.
Those hummingbirds are fortunate that you are providing such a great environment for them.

> 4. Two varieties of gravilea. They bloom intermitantly year around, even in the middle of winter. They are both now quite large, and hummers love them.

> 5. A Black Sally Eucalyptus. (blooms on fall)

> 6. Red Trumpet and Japanese Honeysuckle.

> 7. A Madrona Tree, which is only recently big enough. to bloom.

> 8. A Chilean Flame Tree. It is now only about 6 feet tall, but bloomed for the first time last spring. The long red tublar flowers occurin May.

> 9. A few native Salmon Berries attract spring Rufous Hummers.
