Rufous Hummingbird

This little guy appears to have claimed ownership of one of our feeders for a few days, ripping around making angry noises to chase other males (or anything with wings!) away.

Despite the cold weather (high temps in the low double-digits, sleet) he's been persistent - probably attracted by the almost-overwhelming scent of our lilac hedge!

No sign of a female, yet - or rather, if she's around, she hasn't been allowed near the feeder!

And they're great practice for me with my 1D Mark IV, flash practice,  and my new-used Manfrotto tripod!
