Rufous Hummingbirds


Starting a new week a day late, since Labor Day was a day for just doing nothing.  Tried watching the Texas Rangers baseball game, but they didn’t do well, so I took a nap.  That’s what us senior type people do on holidays. 🙂

I haven’t come up with anything new in my photographs in the last few days.  I tried to take some images of the bird blind for a future blog post.  I wasn’t too satisfied with my results so I will go back at another time.  Does any one know of a good photographer. 🙂

But Tom Camfield who lives over near the O. C. Fisher Dam and Concho River, had a nice visitor for about three days.  A Rufous Hummingbird.  When he sent me the photos, I had to ask him to ID them for me.  I’m afraid I need to get a little more educated about hummingbirds.  With his permission, I am publishing them here.  Click on any photo to see a nice enlargement.  Enjoy.

 In other news, Ann and I looked for the Roseate Spoonbills this morning, but they were nowhere to be found.  Maybe they decided to leave before the coming storm gets here.  We did still see a couple of Great Blue Herons.  Also, the lake level must have dropped another couple of inches, because we saw another islet being “born”.

So Happy Birding.  Migration is coming soon!
