This first one is one of the Rufous hummers. It's the one that hangs around in the back yard. Nancy says it's a mature female. She marked it with the Yellow spot and it's still hanging around, defending its feeder fiercely!
Back yard Rufous
The front yard Rufous is a younger bird. Nancy marked it with a Red spot. Unfortunately I haven't seen it since last Sunday when it was banded, and I sincerely hope we didn't frighten it away permanently.
Li'l Rufous cusses me out in the morning
later in the day, when all is quiet and good with the world, she rests
