Ruby-throated Hummingbirds

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds

All summer long I’ve had 1, maybe 2 female Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. I would see them very seldom until lately. Over the past couple of weeks they have been coming to the feeder quite often, probably trying to fatten up for their long migration south. 

This week I’ve started seeing the male, he has the iridescent ruby throat. I’m not sure if he’s been around here and just decided to eat at the feeder or if he is one from further up North starting his migration South…

Most of the time I see the 3 birds chasing each other away from the feeder, but once I  did manage to see a female start to come close while the male was feeding…

After a bit, she sat down and took a drink and they both managed to get along!
