Rufous???

ctnchprs_daughter(8)September 23, 2012

Because I live in the Hill County north of San Antonio, my migrant hummingbirds can vary and I'm not 100% on my ID of this little one. I thought this one was a female Ruby until I saw the flash of rufous. Now I can't decide if it is a Rufous or Broad Tailed.

These are the best pictures I could manage. Really wish they would cooperate and BE STILL when I am trying to get their portrait! :-D

Thanks

It's a Broad Tailed Hummingbird. They are all over Austin suburbs.

Thanks! I'm getting a little better at telling them apart at the feeders. I still have some hummers. What about you?
