this hummingbird is visiting, but looks quite different from others we've had. In particular, it's the solid brown head. Is this a Rufous?


thanks ct

Hummers
by: Judy-Seattle

Hi Char! How neat to see a Rufous at your feeder! All winter we had a couple of Anna's Hummers at our feeder. Seeing your Rufous gives me hope that spring will soon be here.
