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
Here we are heading into the second week of October and my little friend the Anna’s Hummingbird is still with us, making his presence felt in our yard! We are hoping they will stay with us for the winter, but only the weather can decide that!
