Although it is getting late in the season, I bought a new hummingbird feeder and hung it in a tree off of my deck. To my delight, a hummer started visiting right away.
Seems like no matter how many times I see the hummers at my feeders, it is always a thrill to watch them.
The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is the most common hummer east of the Mississippi River.
I feel fortunate to live in an area where hummers return each year.
This hummer spends its winters in Central America, Mexico, and Florida.
This is a female, notice the absence of the red throat (visible on the male).
Did you know the Ruby-throated Hummingbird is the only hummer to bread in eastern North America?
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my pics of the female Ruby-throated Hummingbird - Judy.

Holy smokes, Judy! Those are INCREDIBLE pics of your hummer! I just posted a pic of my gorgeous FEEDER - but haven't been able to get a single hummingbird captured this summer. I think it's because I truly haven't spent much time outdoors being so hot and humid - and have been working more and "bird gazing" less this year.ReplyDelete
Anyway - well done, ma'am - those are award winning pictures!!!!!
gorgeous, gorgeous photos!ReplyDelete
We get lots of ruby-throated hummingbirds at our feeder too and I never tire of watching them. You managed to get some really great shots of them; they are so hard to capture.ReplyDelete
Amazing photos!!! We have humming birds that like our Rose of Sharon bush. You are so lucky! Have a grand weekend!ReplyDelete
Judy - I also adore hummers! Of course, we are much further north, so I have stopped filling my feeders - want to encourage those little hummers to head south!!!ReplyDelete
Fabulous photos! You are quick on the trigger to get these speedy little joys!ReplyDelete
Love those Hummingbirds!ReplyDelete
Our feeders are still busy, but I know soon (and suddenly) they will all be gone until Spring.
They are so fast it is sometimes hard to get photos - you did a great job!
Have a wonderful day!
Cute hummer, I love them too. I am still seeing two hummers in my yard and at the feeders. Take care, enjoy your day! Wishing you a happy weekend!
