I haven’t been seeing male Ruby-throated Hummingbirds lately, and thought they had started their migration south, but this morning one came around.
He looked resplendent with his red throat.
His throat will be red or black depending on how the light falls on it.
In any case, he may be a young male, born this year. As soon as I took the above shot, the guardian of the feeder, an older female, swooped down on him and sent him packing. Alas, it happened so fast, almost violently fast, that I could not capture it. She was like a bullet train aimed at him and he reeled back all the way into the magnolia tree and beyond.
