Look who I spotted bringing in the new year! I'm tentatively calling this a female Black-chinned hummingbird, although the juvenile male looks similar. Since we have hummingbirds nearly year round I ought to get to know them better, which might just be as far as I get in making a resolution for 2013. I'm overcommitted as it is. Birdwatching -- no, let's be honest: bird noticing -- would be a peaceful diversion and help me feel a little more connected to my shared habitat. I'm open to a little of that as I search for sweet sustenance in this dry, dry place.
