Description

The Rufous Hummingbird has returned to the Olympic Peninsula! Here it's feeding on a Madrona Tree, but it times its return to the blossoming of the Red Flowered Currant (which bloomed several weeks ago), and I think is rather amazing.

Description from Wikipedia

Traditionally, the bird order Apodiformes contained three living families: the swifts (Apodidae), the tree swifts (Hemiprocnidae), and the hummingbirds (Trochilidae). In the Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy, this order is raised to a superorder Apodimorphae in which hummingbirds are separated as a new order, Trochiliformes. With nearly 450 species identified to date, they are the most diverse order of birds after the passerines.

No range data available.
