ruby and rufous

Here then, for those wanting to know, are photos showing the difference between Rufous (Selasphorus rufus) and Ruby-throated (Archilochus colubris) hummingbirds. The Rufous is a decidedly western bird. The Ruby-throated decidedly eastern.

I have no idea who Paul Conover is. I could guess, a bird photographer.
