Some pictures of our latest back yard guest. I had been working under the assumption that it was a ruby-throated hummingbird (the kind I’m familiar with from back east), but apparently they don’t make it out this far. If it were a ruby-throated, this would be a girl, as it lacks the eponymous red throat. But, not being a ruby-throat, I don’t know what kind of birdie it is, except that it’s cute, and very happy with its new feeder. As always, click for big, click again for bigger.
