seeing some new faces around the neighborhood the past few days.
american goldfinches in the backyard.
and this mysterious hummingbird. i am positive i saw a female rufous hummingbird the other morning, but it was hard to see the reddish feathers in the overcast light today. so i’m not sure if she’s a rufous or a black-chinned hummingbird. either way, i’m psyched that she’s becoming a regular visitor.
