Here’s today’s Hummer. A female Rufous (Selasphorus rufus) on a flower from the Butterfly bush. This little lady and a Anna’s spent quite a lot of time on this bush today!

    • Ruth, thank you! The Rufous is an amazing Hummer. It migrates each year from here to the Gulf of Mexico and back. What an amazing feat for a bird so small!
