Rufous Hummingbird Defending Her Territory

Species: Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) | Location: Las Vegas, NV, United States

The Rufous hummers arrive in Nevada in late August migrating south to Mexico. They are aggressive, and pretty much drive other hummers away from the feeders in our yard. They stay two to four weeks, and are then gone.
