Rufous Hummingbird 8/17/2010

There was a post to AR-Bird today about a Rufous Hummingbird at a house in the Heights where one had been seen for almost six months last fall and winter.  After work, I called and went over. The home owners very graciously allowed me to hang out in their den and wait. I didn’t have to wait long, the hummer appeared almost instantly. He however was very territorial and for about thirty minutes the only glimpsies I got were his backside as he chased another hummer away.  Finally however, I was able to get some images as he took a breather.
