This sweet little female Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) likes to stop at our rain chain for a drink of water and a little rest.

If you didn’t know, Hummingbirds are my all time favourites! I have a huge passion for birds, but Hummers are on the top of the list. We had Anna’s Hummingbirds ( Calypte anna) us all winter. We fed them and gave them a dry place to perch. This little guy is the first of the Rufous Hummingbirds (Selasphorus rufus)we have seen this year in our yard. Or anywhere else for that matter. I look into his eyes and wonder where he was all winter. Anyway, welcome back Mr. Rufous
Our sweet little Anna’s Hummingbird in late December sitting on her branch in a snowstorm. Actually I think she was trying to catch Snowflakes!
Here’s my little friend the winter Hummingbird. Through all the cold and snow, she is still with us. Weighing at less that 5 grams, she’s a brave little girl and I love to see her!
