I recently saw a PBS special about Hummingbirds that are born in Canada, then after 4 weeks, begin a 3000 mile solitary migration to Mexico through the Rockies. This little guy was feeding on my flowers on the deck this morning. Completely unafraid, he allowed me to circle him and take dozens of pictures. What a treat!
