This Audubon Birds 500 piece Puzzle of the Hummingbird II (Rufous Hummingbird) used to be an easy bird to pin down - it breeds in the Pacific Northwest from northern California to southern Alaska, and it winters in southwestern Mexico. It has an interesting migration along the Pacific Coast in early spring and along the western mountains, including the highest meadows, in summer and fall. But in recent years, more and more Rufous Hummingbirds are being seen in the eastern states in the fall and along the Gulf of Mexico - from Florida to Texas - all winter long. Like other hummingbirds, Rufous come easily to sugar - water feeders and to a wide varity of nectar - producing flowers, and they are now a nationwide favorite bsckyard visitor. Female and immature hummingbirds are notoriously difficult to identify, but a North American hummer with a bright rufous back is bound to be an adult male Rufous.
