As you know, lately I haven’t been able to get out much because of this dastardly cold. I do feel like I’m inching my way to wellness though, so yay for that! In the meantime, I was out on our deck yesterday late afternoon and noticed a Rufous Hummingbird enjoying the food I’ve put out so I hurried inside to get my camera. I fired off 6 shots and came inside to load them onto the computer. I was really happy to see I got this one. He is flying proud!
They are dynamic little birds! They migrate such a long way! I’ve also noticed I can HEAR the difference in the way their wings flap vs. the Anna’s Hummingbird I posted a few weeks ago. I’ve included a link to a fascinating article about these hummingbirds that you might want to check out: Rufous Hummingbird Article
