The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is one of my favorite birds that I definitely enjoy seeing in my backyard.
These dominate birds are beautiful in shape as well as in color. Very skilled flyers that can maneuver in such a way no other bird species can, such as hovering and flying in reverse.
Being so small they are easy to miss when surrounded by vegetation.
They are not afraid of bigger birds I’ve noticed, however, I saw a one fly away from a large wasp that was attracted by the nectar aroma.
The Ruby- throated are very playful with their mates.
I know that hummingbirds are not seen in many Countries… Well, you miss an incredible little bird!
But I have pictures for you, so don’t feel bad.
