The Hummingbirds have become very active here in the past week, particularly.
Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are the regulars in Georgia. We have one adult male for certain, and he is a “sentry” setting up in differenent spots in trees in the back yard, waiting for the other Hummers to come by on their way to the backyard feeder … and he heads them off in a variety of beautiful aerial manuevers, then back to a sentry point!
There are at least 4 other Ruby-throats around our feeders. One in particular is an adult female, and one for sure is a juvenile male. The other two I’m not sure about yet. And, there may be more! A total of 5 individual RT Hummers have been spotted at one time, a few days ago. They continue to do their thing!
I have some photos, on film still, of the adult male RT. Once they are developed, if there are any good ones I’ll get them online here!
