Rufous Hummingbird In Winter



I’m going to assume that this is the same Rufous Hummingbird that visited last Winter. I’ve seen this little bird for about 1 month now, and it is a real challenge to get a quality picture.  I actually pulled out my bird blind to get these pictures I captured today.  This bird is very skittish. Normally as soon as it sees me, it flies off. It acts completely different than the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds which appear to care very about my presence.
