Yesterday’s Nature, Embudo, NM, 7-8-15

The Rufous hummingbirds arrive at our place in early July, already on the southern leg of their yearly migration. Alongside the Black-chinned hummingbirds (that have been with us since April), they often stay for the remainder of the summer. We now have at least two Rufous males in residence, and expect the females to soon arrive. The fighting around the feeders is, of course, intensifying, with the Rufous being generally more belligerent than the Black-chinned. I also expect to see the Calliope hummingbird before long.
