Hummingbird, Rufous (FIRST)

Date: 01/17/2023

Number: 1

I think this is not the past Rufous that left way before the jet stream freeze in December.

Yesterday I was sweeping tons of leaves off patio around 8 a.m. and heard a hummingbird  just tweeting away close.

    I got up this morning curious before daylight sat out playing the same Rufous sounds  from cell. Heard it again briefly. 

   Just a few minutes ago, 2:30 p.m what looks like a female  Rufous  dove into patio area as I just happened  to be watching moved
songbird feeders. We moved those yesterday way out from hummingbird patio feeder.

  All we have is a blooming tri color, red, yellow,
purple 'Viola' hanging  basket. I just went out to get this morning  for something  colorful in the dead back. All sources are void in nectar plants right now. I guess pansies did it for a Rufous  attraction. Potted Rokin deep purple salvia is beginning to bloom.
