Time seems to move along faster and faster each year and the time I get to spend with these beautiful wee creatures is truly fleeting. They arrive to Vancouver Island about mid March from their Wintering area in Southern Mexico and by mid June each year they are heading south again. I am seeing young Rufous (and Annas) at the feeders this past week and going through a record amount of nectar. (some days 3 litres)
A female Rufous seen here just exiting, stage right! :)
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
