This was taken early in the morning. The hummingbird perched on a the metal stand I use for the hummingbird feeder. He landed in a spot in front of a break in the tree with a bright area behind it.
This is the first rufous hummingbird I've seen at my feeder this year. The hummingbirds are slowly starting to return. Maralee
The hummingbirds have been scarce so far this year. For whatever reason, there haven't been very many around. However, in the last week, I've seen a couple at my feeders. Maybe they're just late in coming back this year. Maralee
One of the hummingbirds that has been visiting my feeders. The dark streaks on its throat are actually red when the sun hits it just right. Maralee
It has warmed up (finally) and I have been seeing a few more hummingbirds at my feeders. Maralee
