Selasphorus hummer sighting

hawkeye_wx(z5 east-central IA)April 28, 2013

I had a female selasphorus hummer(probably rufous) visit my feeders the last couple days. This is a first for me. This hummer had obvious rufous coloring on its sides down to its rump along with a strong central gorget patch. Its back was green. It appeared the topside of the tail was mostly green, but I never got a great look at the tail feathers. It certainly wasn't an adult male or female ruby-throated. I hope this hummer comes through my yard again in fall as well as next spring.

were they at feeders then? I wonder where she was on her way to. Neat to see different hummers!
