It isn’t too often hummingbirds sit still but this one finally did. Taken in Pike National Forest, Colorado this past Sunday, this female Rufous Hummingbird was quite colorful. From her perch above the feeder she was able to easily defend it from others who wanted to partake in breakfast. The Rufous winters in southern Mexico then moves up the Pacific coast in late winter and early spring. It will start its migration south along the Rocky Mountains as early as July – likely why we saw this one.
