Any advice is welcome

...just zis guy, you know?
I've been out to B.C. a couple of times since I started birding. I have never managed to connect with Anna's (I presume that's the species you mean - Allen's occurs considerably south of the U.S. border) although they are supposedly widespread on Vancouver Island. Calliope, on the other hand, was easy to see at Manning Provincial Park, an excellent spot just a few km. inland from Vancouver. There were some feeders at a visitor's centre there, I believe, and they weve just swarming with Rufous Hummingbirds, and the occasional Calliope would sneak in from time to time.

(Forgive me if I'm a bit hazy on all this - just checked my list, last time I went through Manning was 23 years ago!)
