Default Up to five species of hummers today

With a arrival of a male Rufous, today I had Broad-billed, Broad-tailed, Black-chinned, and Anna's in the yard. Also FOS Scotts oriole. THis is only 1/3 of the regulars we get here with 15 species regularly seen in the Chiricahua Mountains.

sorry no pics

I've got to be at least a month off from seeing the first hummer and you already have five? Boy am I getting the short end of the stick.

I only saw one species until I put up a hummingbird feeder. Last season we had three different species. Would be nice to have 7 different hummingbirds.
