We are seeing this with Anna's in our yard in the North End of Tacoma the last couple of days too. We were wondering if it might just be juvenile birds practicing.

Have read that their season is Dec to Apr, yet there's at least one pair that has been actively courting around/over our yard. Is this normal in our area? Haven't been in our house here in Edmonds long enough to have some idea what "normal" is (as much as one can ever define it). The female sits on the tip of the (usually) tallest branch of a large shrub and then the male really puts on a show. I certainly do enjoy watching and hearing the little "zippers" much of the time I'm out in the garden. Thanks for any input.
