CK Franklin had reported a Rufous hummer at her house this week so, since I had Friday off and a new camera, I visited there after dropping Sam off at school. It was sunny and cold, a little below freezing, and the Sun was still low as I stood quietly in their front yard. I think I may have just missed his first visit because it took a while for him to show so I enjoyed her other yard birds until then. Once he did show, it took four near approaches before he decided to come to the feeder but eventually he did. I got good looks and some good pictures.
