Rufous

 

I have been visited by male Rufous Hummingbirds for about a week. But, until yesterday, I only managed poor shots of it. The males arrive here first; I trust the females will be along shortly. And maybe some other species. I look forward to it all.

    Rufous (a name which suggests not just a reddish-brown color but also perhaps a temperament) was followed shortly after by a male Calliope. The streaks of wine-red feathers in the gorget can literally stick out like a stiff Victorian collar.
