Interesting day. I get home to a distinctive sound in the yard, but I am unable to believe it (since I don't expect Rufous until July.) That said, a loud, buzzing, rufous hummer at the feeder. Still trying to get a good photo, 'cos it is skittish and I don't want to distract it from eating, but I've seen it clearly.
Interesting day 'cos while standing outside (shivering) I see what appears to be a Spotted Towhee. I've never seen one of those at this residence (at an altitude of 7800 feet) in the 20 years I've lived here.
