This little one was feeding right in front of Tai this morning...so close he couldn't get a picture. I yelled at him not to move once it landed. :lol: :mrgreen:

You got his number...call him. :) We've been seeing it or another one for the last 2 weeks or so.

Tai was too close...like 3' close to it....as soon as he moved it flew further into the bush. Thankfully he allowed me a few pics seeing how I saw it fly right by him. :mrgreen:

I don't think it's common...most likely a late bloomer or one that got lost in it's travels especially being a Rufous Hummingbird.....not too common around here.
