This female hummingbird at our feeder was a greeting for us when we arrived home in Elkton today. It’s a female Rufous Hummingbird and a FOS, which in “bird talk” stands for First of the Season. When we left a week ago we had only been seeing a male who was very busy defending a feeder for himself against another male Rufous as I posted on March 14. From what I have read, female Rufous’ usually arrive a couple of weeks after the males, presumably allowing the males time to establish their territories. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens as the season progresses.
