Many of you have asked about the numbers of Ruby-throated hummingbirds we have in the yard lately.
For the CBC on Dec. 27 we had 21 hummingbirds - all Ruby-throated and of which there were four adult males (we usually have 1 or 2 for the entire winter so this is a new treat for us). The total number of Hummers is about at the average as we can usually expect 20+ with us until April or May.
-- Ask me about my upcoming book - a photo essay of select breeding hummingbirds in North American and The Bahamas!
