    Hello, is this a Ruby Throated Humming Bird. It’s a great picture. from findlay

  4. We don’t see this particular species, but the ones we do see are most likely moving south now. I’ve taken down at least one feeder; the nights are getting very chilly now.

    Beautiful shot of your hummer. My male has left and only the young and female is here.

    Beautiful!! I love this portrait! And I will also miss having them around…even if they are feisty with each other. It’s very amusing. The hummingbird numbers are getting fewer and fewer now.

  15. Jim says:

    I just refilled what I believe will be the last feeder for our two this year. I love to watch and hear them.
    Lovely photo, Pat.

    I posted some hummingbirds yesterday on my Sidewalk Shoes blog, though mine didn’t pose nearly so nicely for me!

  32. It is sad but that is how it is. At least you have some shots to remember this litle beauty.
