29: Rufous Hummingbird

Walking on the Land's End Trail today, we spied a Rufous Hummingbird. It's really similar to the Allen's. But the bird we saw was orange across its back, and the flight pattern was right for the Rufous. It was fun to see this little bird, so different from the Anna's we see all the time, and we watched it for a while as it went from perch to perch on various trees.

oh the Rufous was so cute. His body color was so orangey- brown. I am so used to seeing grey - green of the Anna's. It was a great day. Hummingbirds are my favorites.
