Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus), Cordova, Alaska

Year: 2013
From collection: General collection
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
This tiny Rufous Hummingbird has just reached the south coast of Alaska in early May. Their breeding habitat is open areas and forest edges in western North America from southern Alaska to California. This bird nests further north than any other hummingbird. The female builds a nest in a protected location in a shrub or conifer. The male aggressively defends feeding locations within his territory. The same male may mate with several females.
