How rufous you are!

Every year we get a visit from Rufous Hummingbirds. They winter in Mexico and stop off in our backyard for a day to charge up the batteries for the rest of their travel to Mendocino, CA and beyond. This is a little girl. Normally it’s the boys that look gorgeous but this gal is pretty darn colorful in her own right. That bright yellow on top of her head is pollen. Nothing like a little additional makeup!
