my encounters with birds and other critters in Louisiana (mostly)
Thursday, March 23, 2006
I still have two Rufous females in the yard! Heard the electric zzzt and snap this morning when I went out to fill the other feeders. Also saw one on the feeder and witnessed it chasing off a rival. Of course the rival may be the Ruby-Throat I think I saw on Monday! The feeder has shifted and the bird's full-on back was to me, but it looked like a whole different color green and when it flew off I thought I got a glimpse of full gorget. So, we'll see! I'm excited my little ladies are still with me though...
