I saw my first Male Rufous about 4:30 on 3/11/16. He was sitting in a tree about 10 feet from me, until I stepped inside to get my camera (took me less than a minute) but he was gone. I've had about 3 dozen Anna's winter over. They empty 2 big feeders every day. I hope they stay and don't let the transient bullies run them off (not that I don't love the Rufous).
