There is so little to identify a species with here.

White-necked Jacobin Hummingbird
When I came back from Costa Rica, I discovered they have way more than the two species you see Vancouver so I dubbed this "Blue Headed Hummingbird". The internet showed me the error of my ways.
Species: Florisuga mellivora (White-necked Jacobin)

Green Thorntail Hummingbird (Female)
I believe this is a Female Green Thorntale based on images I found on the internet. The males have nice wispy tails.
Species: Discosura conversii (Green Thorntail)

Now I really like Hummingbirds. The next goal should be to get rid of the feeder.
Species: Selasphorus rufus (rufous hummingbird)

Downy Woodpecker And Pine Siskin
From what my book says, this is classic Pine Siskin behaviour - trying to convince a larger bird to leave the food source so it can have it all to itself. This shot also shows prime Pine Siskin features - forked tail and yellow bar on the wing.
