ZAPATA BIRDING
Category: Live from the Ranch

Rufous Hummingbird.




Rufous Hummingbirds are a colourful harbinger of the changing seasons.
Although it’s only the 4th of July these little birds are on the southbound trajectory of their autumn migration.
They make a large looping circuit of western North America, from their wintering grounds in Central America. Heading north along the Pacific coast as far up as Alaska. Then returning south, inland along the spine of the Rockies. They make one of the longest migrations of any bird relative to it's size. This bird was photographed today, after seeing the first one on the 2nd July.
