One day we were watching a hummingbird feed when we noticed a flash of red. I was able to sneak up slowly on the bird and see it has a patch of red feathers on it's chin before it flew away. A few minutes later it came back to feed and I was able to get our camera and sneak up on it again.
Whenever it would bend down it's head to drink, the red shiny feathers would flash. I was able to determine this is a male Rufous hummingbird. We only ever see one at a time, so I wonder if it is one that has a nest nearby. We have also seen it hover in front of the window when one of the kids was sitting near it like it was looking inside. I just love watching these little birds...they are quite amazing! I really think the Lord must have had lots of fun when he was creating all these animals! :)
