Rufous Hummingbird

I thought I would start my bird blog with some of the birds that frequent my backyard in Abbotsford, B.C. The first is the Rufous Hummingbird.
These little guys are among fastest and most agressive of the hummingbirds. Scientific name for them is Selasphorus rufus. 
It is quite common for these birds to fly up right in front of one's face and hover for a moment before flying off. (Top photo taken in July 2013, Bottom photo taken in July 2012)
