Description

We last saw our little rufous hummingbird early in the morning on April 12, so we think he must have headed off on his migration. By April 12, his gorget had gotten quite full and bright orange. It’s amazing how the feathers filled in so quickly and changed from day to day. We had a rufous hummer with us last year until April 10, so this little guy stayed a few days past that.
The attached picture was taken on April 7. It’s not a great photo, but you can see the redbud trees blooming in the background, so in addition to the feeders we had up, he also had native trees to feed on. It was rainy the day I took this, and he found shelter on a bracket just outside our kitchen window, where he could get out of the rain.

Our little rufous hummingbird is still with us (he’s been here since August 24, 2013). His gorget feathers are beginning to turn bright orange, as you can see in the attached picture. We also had a rufous hummer with us last year, and he stayed until April 10, so we expect this little guy to be leaving pretty soon.

Description from Wikipedia

Hummingbirds are birds that constitute the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring in the 7.5–13 cm (3–5 in) range. Indeed, the smallest extant bird species is a hummingbird, the 5-cm Bee Hummingbird. They hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 12–80 times per second (depending on the species). They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings, which sometimes sounds like bees or other insects....
