We are now hosting our very own Rufous Hummingbird. This little guy seems to have displaced Pierre, our beloved Ruby-throat, taking residence in the large crepe myrtle tree. Rufous hummers only winter in these parts, so hopefully Pierre will return when Ruffles migrates farther south. He's quite a character and we are enjoying his company however long it may be.
This is Ruffie's tongue. He may have been trying to catch an insect.
