Sunday's Hummers

You probably thought that this post would just be of Anna's Hummingbirds. 

That's what I thought too.

And there is certainly nothing wrong with that.

The female...

...and male Anna's are wonderful.


But on the 18th I was surprised to see this bird.

It's a Rufous! 

And I've seen it every day since Tuesday. 

I'm not sure how much longer it will hang around.

But it is a treat to have it.

The Anna's are fighting with it.

'Cause that's what they do!

Though they hang out together without battles.

Hummers - the Chichuahuas of the bird world!

I am thrilled that you had a Rufous visitor! Beth, thank you for the chuckle! Your comment about the Hummers being the Chichuahuas in the bird world is spot on. Enjoy your day!
