Rufous Hummingbird (6424)
A Rufous Humminbird prepares to draw nectar from another Red-Flowering Currant. Every spring birders and biologists alike speculate about the reason for rufous hummingbird arrivals along the West coast. One theory gaining wider popularity postulates that these flying jewels arrive to take advantage of the richer sap provided by Red-breasted Sapsucker sap wells once trees begin to leaf out.
