Thank you KathleenMcEachern! That is what I figured it might be too but just wasn't too sure. Haven't seen it since that day.

Hi Glen - sorry I should have seen this sooner. There is only a minute chance that this is not a Rufous Hummingbird female or juvenile. There are a few Anna's Hummingbirds around our area now so it could be that, but I don't think so.

I should say, Mother Nature thanks you :).
