Another view of the Rufous

As I expected, this bird is most likely a female Rufous. On suggestion by Dr. George C. West, co-founder of the Hummingbird Monitoring Network, I checked though all of my images of her and didn't get any where she extended her tail feathers. Other than a fortuitous image of that, you actually have to have the bird in hand to make a positive ID.

Clicking on the image will allow you to see a larger version of this image, (All of my images actually) but it has been reduced from the original (also like all of my images here) and is also cropped, so looks slightly soft.

Canon 20D - 1/320th second, 500mm @ f/ 8, ISO 3200
