Exploring Nature with Jerry Hall: The rufous hummingbird

I enjoyed seeing many varieties of hummingbirds on a recent trip to Fort Davis, in the Big Bend area of Texas.  
At one location in Fort Davis State Park, I saw rufous, broad-tailed and black-chinned hummers at a single sugar-water feeder.  In all, there are some 18 species in that area.
The rufous hummingbird is one of my favorites. It ranges farther north than most hummers, breeding in the Pacific Northwest and through western Canada to the coast of Alaska.  Right now, it is moving south in a leisurely migration to Mexico for the winter.

Q: This summer I decided to tube down the river once a week.  I see these huge birds nearly every time I go.  Would you help me figure out what it could be? I know cranes and herons are found near rivers.
