Evening Visitor

My neighbors called with a surprise this evening.  They had a rufous hummingbird in the garage and he wasn't leaving.  I don't blame him.  It is cold outside.  He flew around us, and the warm lights. It didn't take him long to find the feeder we put out for him.  I think he has done this before.

He was very colorful, as we could see while he was flying, but not in the photos.  He'll probably be on his way north tomorrow.

Here is the link to the hummingbird who visited our barn in 2007.

I still find it amazing that you have hummingbirds in Washington State. I just associate them with a warmer climate. No hummingbirds in the UK sadly.
