Orange Hummingbirds

Tim Bray

28 February 2021 - I have been seeing or hearing one Selasphorus (Rufous/Allen's) Hummingbird in my garden for several days. When I could get a look, it was always a male Allen's with green back.

Today though, a big pulse arrived and there were at least 6 adult male Allen's and one adult male Rufous Hummingbird present.

Make sure your feeders are clean and filled with fresh sugar water, and watch carefully for possible vagrant Calliope, Costa's, or Black-chinned.
