Male Rufous Hummingbird

The first day of spring was marked by the arrival of the migratory rufous hummingbird.  Since that day, the male, and now the female, have been regularly hanging around our feeders.  They defend the feeders with ferocity and our local Anna’s family is definitely distressed about these newcomers as fighting regularly breaks out.  It’s a glorious day and I am truly  hoping that the weather forecast is correct and that we will be experiencing temperatures nearing 60F.  Here is a photograph of our resident male rufous.

I’m signing off until the rains return.

Enjoy this glorious weekend!
