  2. Nice capture - his colors really show there.
     
  3. We had a band of adult Rufous males pass through a couple of weeks ago on their way south. Talk about aggressive! They harassed Robins, squirrels (yeah) and even a cat (triple YEAH), not to mention all the other hummers. What a treat to observe.

    Thanks for the kind comments.
    Nick they have become very aggressive as I think they are fattening up for the big migration. I watch one the other day chase a chickadee through the yard.
