Lots of hummingbirds at the feeders. The Rufous tends to be more agressive about defending a paticular feeder. This species of hummingbird has the longest migratory route. According to research, this species has a good memory, able to go back to where a feeder was placed the previous year. A group of Rufous can be called a bouquet, glittering, hover, shimmer and tune of hummingbirds.
