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’s another shot of the Hummer and the Lucifer. I am completely enamoured with both the bird and the flower.

Here’s a shot from last year that I never uses. Still a favourite. A Rufous Hummingbird on the Turtlehead flowers.
