Ruby Index| Rufous Index | Next

In winter 2000-2001 I had a female Rufous hummingbird banded in my yard. This mature female Rufous was seen and photographed a year later (Mardis Gras Day 02/12/2002). I thought it might be my first returnee hummingbird, and later it was recaptured and identified by her band number as the same female rufous banded in my yard in 2000! Here it is feeding from CarolinaYellow Jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens).
