I spotted a flashy male Rufous Hummingbird this afternoon at the beach at Lowell Point State Recreation Site, sitting at the very tip of a small spruce tree, checking out the scene. Weighing less than a nickel, this tiny wonder recently flew 2000 miles or more, following the Pacific coast from wintering sites in southeastern US, Mexico, and Central America.
Later, a female Rufous Hummingbird found my waiting feeder in town. Yay!
