What a treat to see this gorgeous fellow on one of our feeders today. First of the year for us.
But it's really even more special, because we /seldom/ have Rufous Hummingbirds in this area at all. I can go two or three years without seeing one in the yard.
It's odd, how localized different species can be. I hear White-crowned Sparrows singing all over University Village, but I never hear or see them in our area of Wedgwood, about 3 blocks east of Seattle Audubon.
