The staggered arcs that made up this circular structure correspond to a Cornell University ornithological diagram of the annual cycle of the Anna’s Hummingbird: breeding, migrating, and molting. Flowering plants made this work a natural feeder for the Presidio’s resident hummingbirds. Habitat for Anna’s Hummingbird was constructed of surplus Presidio cypress removed as part of the Presidio Trust’s reforestation program.
