Just as the sun is setting, this hummingbird feeder becomes a hub of activity. We can have as many as 12 individuals feeding all at once! I love it! In addition to RUHUs, we also see many Calliopes and some Black-chinned hummers here.

Perhaps the most common view I get when attempting shots of hummingbirds. This Rufous Hummingbird male has been around for a couple weeks now, Vancouver, WA.
