Ketchikan, Alaska - We hang our
feeders and are prepared to shoot -- photos that is! These fascinating
little hummingbirds are again back in Ketchikan and again providing
endless challenges to Ketchikan's photographers and endless entertainment
from dawn to dusk with their incredible J-dives and darting speeds.
These rufous hummingbirds likely
were among those making the annual 2,600-mile spring migration
from southern Mexico to Southcentral Alaska bringing with them
a little bit of hummingbird heaven to our neck of the woods.

A full-grown rufous measures 3 1/2 inches from bill tip to tail
end. These fuel-efficient birds are the northernmost hummingbirds.
