Finally it's spring. Never mind that it's cold and windy, it's officially spring. The weather didn't stop me from celebrating, and what better way to celebrate than with Lucifer Hummingbirds? They are so splendid looking this time of year. The one I photographed here is banded. I don't remember seeing this gorget pattern last year so this may be his first spring adult plumage.
He seems really proud of his mantled collar. Unfortunately the overcast weather hindered me from getting a sharper photo.
I have lived in the Christmas Mountains since 1976, and started my oasis in 1996. You can contact me at email@example.com for visiting instructions. No minors. Pet rules are the same as for Big Bend National Park.
