Daily Postcard: Rufous Hummingbird In White Rock

Daily Postcard: Adult male Rufous Hummingbird spotted Friday afternoon in White Rock. Rufous Hummingbirds have the hummingbird gift for fast, darting flight and pinpoint maneuverability. They are pugnacious birds that tirelessly chase away other hummingbirds, even in places they’re only visiting on migration. Like other hummers, they sip nectar and eat insects, taking them from spider webs or catching them in midair. Source: Cornell University. Photo by Nancy Ann Hibbs
