Rufous Hummingbird

This Rufous Hummingbird image languished in my blog queue since 12 May 2012. Rufous Hummingbirds have departed Olympia for their west Mexican wintering grounds. They breed in the Pacific Northwest north to Alaska. As a result, Alaskan birds enjoy “a short breeding season but the longest day-length seen by any hummingbird” (Healy and Calder 2020).
