Now in Alaska
Rufous hummingbirds breed in open areas and forest edges. Their range is western North America from California northwards into Canada and Alaska. They nest further north than any other hummingbird.

"First sunny day of the season with westerly winds. I saw the hummingbird in a sunny spot sheltered from the wind."
