JUNE: 612

June - Rufous 612

Love these guys - little Rufous Hummingbirds

Often described as "feisty," the Rufous may have the ideal size-to-weight ratio among North American hummingbirds. This bird outflies all other species, and usually gets its way at feeders at the expense of slower, less-maneuverable hummers. The Rufous has the longest migration route of all US hummingbirds.

  1. So adorable. I have always just loved humming birds. There was a time I had many bird feeders and would so enjoy watching them every summer morning! Gorgeous piece!
