This Rufous Hummingbird visits our garden every summer and perches on the same treetop. Then he migrates on, as far south as Mexico.
Watching birds, and learning about them, has brought comfort and joy to many of us during this pandemic. It’s easier to identify a bird standing on a branch or foraging on the ground. Birds in flight are more challenging because they fly so quickly and they display more feathers. I try to never disturb birds, so all of the birds here were photographed flying past me.
