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!


A Chance Encounter

Here’s something I’ve never seen before. Both of these Hummingbirds are very possessive of their territory. But here they are sitting a couple of feet apart in the same bush. The top one is a female Rufous (Selasphorus rufus) and the bottom one is a female Anna’s (Calypte anna.) Needless to say I was quite happy to get them together!
