Rufous Hummingbird

Here's another in the series of hummingbirds I'm doing. I made hummers last year, but with wings closed, and I didn't have any sparkly fiber. These are a lot more fun.

He is tiny and comes complete with the iridescence hummers are known for. "Rufous" is a word used to describe the orangey-red color.

Today is the first spring-feeling day in a bit. I went out to the gardens and pulled some old broccoli and kale plants and composted them. The chives are up! It won't be long before I start nibbling at them. We have a couple of crocuses in bloom out front. Thanks be to God!
