Last Of The Ruby Throated Hummingbirds For Fall 2011



The majority of our Ruby Throated Hummingbirds left last weekend, but we do have 2 females that remain.  Honestly, I think they like it without all the males fighting over the feeders.

For Fall 2011, we maybe had 10 total Ruby Throats, which has been about average the last couple of years.  Back before Hurricane Ike, we had close to 100 during the Fall, but haven’t had those high of numbers since then.

This particular female in the pictures below, likes to stand guard in the Pussy Willow tree.  I’m not sure if she is guarding the feeders, or just watching me take pictures of her.
