female Rufous Hummingbird

The southern migration of the female and juvenile Rufous Hummingbirds through our area continues. There has been an incredible amount of activity at my feeders and flowers with sometimes as many as 20 hummingbirds throughout the yard. The Rufous continue to bring much confrontation with lots of chatter and tail fanning that sometimes resorts to clashing bills. The frenzied excitement that they evoke is quite a show!
