I'm still looking for my first Rufous, too, but my neighbor over the ridge and a friend in Eugene both had one arrive yesterday.¬ They both say it's about average, though, like me, have had them arrive up to 2 weeks earlier in the recent past.¬ They've been arriving at my place later every year since 2015.¬ Maybe today will be the day.

Every winter I really enjoy the antics of my resident Ruby-crowned kinglets. They definitely are not shy, are easily seen and heard with their all-over-the-place fun personalites. Recently I've¬ heard some short songs going on here and there, but this morning 3 of them had full-on long songs repeated over and over. I got a visual on one and he had his ruby crown spread up and the color was SO very shockingly bright! (it helped that the sun was out this morning!) It saddens me that they do not bred here.¬ On a separate species,I have not had any Rufous hummingbirds arrive yet, a tad bit late than usual for me.Anybody else had any come in?
