Fresh off the birdcam! Look at the awesome visitor who showed up at my parents’ feeder this morning!
This is a Rufous Hummingbird. They aren’t easily found in Florida, although their range does seem to be growing as they establish a footprint on the East Coast. The last one I saw was at nearby Bok Tower. He’s so pretty when his feathers gleam in the sunlight!
My dad has been saying that he knew he was seeing a Rufous. So yep, Dyeyo, you were right! :)
That last sentence is music to a father’s ears!
Find my birding list from today on eBird.
this is so cool. miss seeing you and your dad
Thanks! My parents are super excited to finally document the rarity that they know they’ve been seeing for a while now.
We still get out to CBBR sometimes but Lake Apopka is so much closer for me! Hope to run into you soon
