Young Male Ruby Throated Hummingbird On Chaste Tree



I’m continuing to see Ruby Throated Hummingbirds. It’s still about 3 weeks early from when I normally see large numbers of them, but I always welcome their visit.  Right now, I think I have about 5 hummers.

It’s not uncommon for them to hang out around this large Chaste tree that I have.  It provides good cover, and they can see all the hummingbird feeders around the yard.

Don & Kate - Beautiful shots! How long do your hummers typically hang around? We have 4 or 5 birds ourselves right now, and we have them typically in Maryland until mid September to as late as the first of October. August is a great time here for hummingbirds.

texdr - They “normally” migrate through around the 3rd week of September, and stay for 1-2 months if I remember correctly. It’s a bit unusual for me to have 5 of them right now.August 22, 2013 – 9:25 am
