There's not been many interesting photo opps in the last few days. I have lots of pictures of hummingbirds sitting on a feeder, but nothing I thought was particularly exciting.
So today I found this Rufous sitting in the ash tree in our back yard. I am not sure if I know whether this bird is a female or an immature male, apparently they look pretty similar. Whichever it is, the females/juveniles have every bit as much attitude as the males, aggressively chasing away any other hummingbirds that try to drink from the feeder. This one is perched on his lookout point, and its only mission is to watch the feeder and chase away any other bird that dares to come too close.
