Great Pumpkin update
I did some research on Mr. Pumpkin (thanks Mom), and found out he is a regular Rufus Hummingbird. They spend most of their summer season on the Washington/Oregon coastal area. So he really is pretty far from home for so soon in the summer. I got a really good picture of his back this morning. You can really tell he is orangey all over....which distinguishes him from one of the other types that is similar. The second picture is a nice shot of him from the front, along with a female Black-chinned.
