Rufous Hummingbirds are Back



I enjoy feeding and watching the Rufous Hummingbirds that migrate here every year. There are some locations in Oregon where the tiny birds are year-around resident's....but not here.  I got home from Dutch Oven Cooking on Saturday about 1230 pm and I noticed the first one. Luckily, I put up a feeder just a few days before..........I always put up a feeder about March 1st. The birds are unlikely to find nectar and flowers right now. I think that I probably have some of the same birds here from last summer. They know where the food is and really use it. This is interesting that I have them at this elevation 2500', but it can be expected when this reliable food is available,
