Thought you would like to know that we have Anna's Hummingbirds in Reno, NV, and they are very keen on Pineapple Sage. Ours are fiercely territorial and will zoom down to hover right in your face if you get too close to their favorite plants.

Cheryl, this is a tricky one....  maybe another bird will come along and show them that your feeder is a actually food source? 

our Anna's this year was the opposite, didn't go to any of our blooming salvias (four kinds), penstemons, stache, Zauchneria, fireweed, etc, went only to one of our three feeders, which we thought was weird......

I think out of desperation I'd put a "model hummingbird" at your feeder, like with it's bill stuck in one of the ports...???  I've got several realistic looking fake hums that I'd try here in our yard....  do you have any?

Or maybe park your feeder right next to your busiest plants with a little sign "open for business, damn it !!"   ;-)

In Caldwell we still have 2 Anna’s coming to the  blooming Pineapple Sage plants and other salvia.  They don’t come to the feeder at all. I know the freezing temps will wipe out the flowers.  Got to figure out how to get them interested in the feeder.  If they do then have to get to heater on the feeder.  Oh such fun to have Anna’s hummingbirds!  Really!

Jon,

Great pics!  It must be Coopers hawk day because I just had one criss-cross in front of me along my walk.  He had immature fine streaks but altogether handsome as always.  

We have one picking off the backyard quail every other evening or so - almost like clockwork, just before dusk, or "zero dark birdy," as we call it.

Re: Dry Lakes - A pair of American Golden Plovers ?

I went and looked this afternoon and got good looks of the same 2 plovers in flight. They are Black-bellied based on having light rumps and dark axillary coverts/wingpits.

There were also Dunlin, Dowitchers, and Stilt, Least, and Semipalmated Sandpipers still present. The Dunlin count was up to 8 but there was only one Stilt Sandpiper today and drastically fewer gulls and Least Sandpipers.

Where are you coming from?  The Dry Lakes playa is located adjacent to Stagecoach Road. I typically get there by heading out of Nampa on 12th St/Highway 45, turn right onto Bowmont, left on Dry Lakes Road (Bowmont t’s into Dry Lakes) and then Dry Lakes makes a 90 degree turn and becomes Stagecoach.  You could also turn right on Missouri or Bennett and the left onto Dry Lakes.

Re: Dry Lakes - A pair of American Golden Plovers ?

Louisa Evers
 

Based on a discussion on the Idaho Bird sightings and discussion page, these are probably black-bellied plovers.  That was based on Bill size, more in distinct supercilium, breast streaking instead of barring, and whiter bellies instead of gray bellies.
