Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Ruby-throated Hummingbird

The other night in my backyard after I had gotten a photo of the Yellow-billed Cuckoo, I saw the Ruby-throated Hummingbird zip by…

Since I already had my camera around my neck I was ready for it. I watched as it went over to some flowers and I took a couple of photos.

In this one it is actually flapping its wings so fast that you can’t even see the wings!

In the US, this is the only hummingbird that breeds east of the Mississippi River.

I believe that this is a female, because I never did see any iridescent ruby throat coloring…

Remember to stay healthy and stay safe!
