They seem to be ever so grateful that we treat them with the feeders.
I know last year, our feeders helped sustain the little helicopters, through a crazy unexpected snow storm, as they stuck the winter out long before they should have.
Last year we had the blacked chinned and the Anna's.
This time we also have the Rufous! Wonder what others will stop by and call our place home for the season?
What joy they bring me!
Get your camera's out everyone!! I know in this light, or picture, it is hard to tell for some.. but this IS a Rufous. In other pictures I have.. it has dark rust colors under its tail feathers, on the chest and on the head and chin area, then the iridescent Green on its back.
