Humming Birds


Early Morning Special

Either I’m up late or up early it doesn’t matter it seems, the older I get the less sleep I get.  I can’t stay awake in the early evenings but can’t stay asleep in the early mornings.  So, here I am posting yet another humming bird photograph for all to enjoy.

    At the risk of sounding ignorant, is this a ruby? It looks different from pics on the web but the overall coloration is leading me in that direction. What say you?

    Larry, i have had the same thoughts on this very subject. But I did do some research on it. I think what we are seeing is Annas Hummingbirds. The males look so similar to the Ruby Throat Hummers but the ranges are different. Annas are here on the western part of the states and the Rubies are on the eastern side of the country: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Ruby-throated_Hummingbird/id or http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Annas_Hummingbird/id
