Rufous Hummingbird at Fuchsia

(Replays Automatically - No Sound)

Rufous Hummingbirds are very fond of fuchsias. Besides having the larger-flowering hanging fuchsias, we have a number of perennial Fuchsia Magellanicas in various locations on our property. These fuchsias having very small blooms, around 1 1/2-inches, are extremely popular with the hummingbirds.

You can read more about the Rufous Hummingbird in the Backyard Birds section including a story about a Rufous Hummingbird with a bee on it's beak.
