RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD IN SOUTHERN ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Here is a collage of photographs taken by Helen, the owner of the home that has attracted the attention of a RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD. It is a bird that is typically only found out West. Sure, they travel East from time to time, as is the case here. The bird did not make an appearance while I was there, but hopefully it will stick around for a while.

According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's All About Birds webiste, "the Rufous Hummingbird breeds farther north than any other species of hummingbird in the world. Very aggressive at feeders, it is the western hummingbird most likely to turn up at feeders in the eastern United States."Simply click on the image for the larger version.

Good Birding,

Dan
