Rufous Hummingbird 9" x 12" acrylic

SOLD This male rufous hummingbird is taking a brief rest from feeding on nectar. Rufous hummingbirds migrate further than any other hummingbird species spending their summers in the Pacific Northwest and their winters in Mexico. I actually saw this particular bird in Tucson, AZ. Perhaps he will be a summer visitor to my home in Oregon? Another interesting fact about rufous hummingbirds is that they are the most aggressive of the hummingbird species and will displace other hummingbirds. My Website
