The Big Reveal!!!!!

I have been chasing this female Ruby-throated Hummingbird for a week, I am finally ready to reveal a few pictures.......





Hummingbirds feed 5 - 8 times per hour, for 30 - 60 seconds at a time!!!!

  2. LOVE the 3rd picture because of her beak all the way thru, but also because of her tiny, tiny feet. :)

  9. We have a male & a female ruby-throated. Female likes to perch while she sips from the feeder; male never perches. Love these precious little birds! Thanks for your photos.

  16. You were able to capture some fine closeups of this beautiful bird. I find it amazing that they can migrate over such long distances with their high-energy flying method... helicopter like. Nice post, Debbie!
