Rufous

 

It is May and the hummingbird season has begun with the Rufous — the scrappiest of our three regular hummingbirds. I look forward to seeing the other two.

A female Rufous Hummingbird stops by.

A male Rufous Hummingbird does so also and displays his iridescent orange gorget.

    love those photos! We can see a male outside our front window-we have named him Fred– he has given us a very good view of how he flits from one fir tree to another! great entertainment!
