Hot off the presses.....just captured this...if you click on the photo it will enlarge and you can appreciate the iridescence in the plumage of this bird....

Male Rufous
Female Rufous


  1. Such a gorgeous hummer. We get the ruby crowned around here but that's about it. Glad I found your blog.

  2. We get the ruby throated humingbird at our cottage and your are right, the male has all the color...ciao

  3. Not sure if my first comment posted - but beautiful shots!

  4. Thanks for visiting troutbirder. I do wander off into other fields of nature at times but birding is one of my favorites. I think your beautiful pictures might inspire me to a higher standard

  5. Nice capture of the Rufous Hummingbird Mary Anne. You are of to a great start bird blogging.

    I imagine you are a nurse. I am an Xray tech (Special Procedures) in northern California and love my profession. Birding is my passion and my main means of relaxation too.

    I look forward to seeing more of your birding adventures. If you ever have any birding questions, feel free to contact me.

    Keep up the good work.
