Description

A Rufous Hummingbird renovated and re-used last years nest in a fir tree. It was right off the gable end of a house so I was able to sit on the peak of the roof and get this shot. I sent up a webcam and lots of people watched as the chick, “Rusty”, developed and eventually fledged. Rusty was the sole hatchling from a pair of eggs which were laid and he thrived.
