Rufous Hummingbird in Yardley, PA

Colleen and I decided at the last minute to run over before the storm this morning to see if we could see the Rufous Hummingbird. It was literally a spur of the moment thing when we realized we could squeeze it in when other plans fell through. She was easy to find, as long as you don't look at the feeders. She was hanging out in a holly tree and a boxwood below it. The holly tree is along Vernon Road. Here is a photo of the Rufous I got. We didn't stay long because I didn't want to prevent her from going about what she needed to do with us present. She didn't seem phased by us, and did a lot of preening and moving from perch to perch. However, with temps in the mid-twenties, I didn't want to take the chance. Hopefully, getting through the snow storm won't be a problem for her.
