Nature’s Jewel Brings True Joy

Do you have Rufous hummingbirds? If so, then you have experienced the instant joy that comes with the first glimpse of one at your feeder. The Rufous Hummingbird's arduous 2,000-mile journey from Central America has finally ended in your own backyard! You have won the lottery…and the payout is that these beautiful jewels will continue to brighten your world until the end of summer. 

The Anna's Hummingbird has wintered in our area and will continue to frequent your backyard feeders. The Rufous Hummingbird is smaller than the Anna's Hummingbird but twice as fiesty!  Watch for battles as they try to establish their territories.
