A homeowner in west suburban Oak Park played host to a special guest: A rare Rufous hummingbird.

The hummingbird decided to nest for part of the winter in the home's back garden, which caused birdwatchers to flock there so they could catch a glimpse.

Eric Gyllenhaal suspects our unusually mild winter and strong winds sent the creature to his yard.
