Rufous hummingbird visiting the Hummingbird sage
A rare sighting, a Rufous hummingbird visiting the plants around the patio.
Usually Anna's hummingbirds are the only ones we see around our garden, so imagine my surprise to notice this one. At first it looked like an Anna's hummingbird because of the green on its back feathers.
Since I observed the hummingbird through a screen door, and also took the photo through the screen, I couldn't really tell if it was an Anna's hummingbird or Rufous.
It spent a lot of the time around the hummingbird sage shrub.
