Day after day I research and write about urban wildlife habitat and as a city dweller I see a lot of pigeons, crows, starlings and juncos, but last night I was pleasantly surprised to find an Anna’s Hummingbird on my sixth floor balcony taking advantage of a container of lavender. It was an excellent reminder of the amazing wildlife right outside our doors even in the middle of the city.
