Rufous Hummingbird

17 comments


They arrived late this year
They are even smaller than Anna’s but very bossy and already chasing all Anna’s around and making their life difficult.

They will stay with us until August and then head back south.

wow so well named aren't they. You cater so well for the hummingbirds you deserve to have these pretty visitors.

I am rather envious if I am honest.

I looked these lovely birds up on-line and am amazed that they migrate from Alaska to Mexico ... such a long journey for such a tiny bird!
