I saw this picture and just had to pass it on…
Here is a wine-throated hummingbird showing off his feathers.
You won’t find this bird in the US. It is a non-migratory hummingbird native to El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.
Here’s a great shot of a ruby-throated hummingbird in Indiana. Here in Atlanta the birds have started to thin but looks like we have a couple of weeks lefts for these northern stragglers.
Thanks @lifebirder for this great pic
Here’s a great live hummingbird cam out of California. The cam is presented from explore.org. It’s a momma hummingbird sitting on her nest.
See it here:
Hey Hummingbird lovers, I ran across this from Cornell Labs it’s a live cam for hummingbirds in West Texas.
The best part of it is there are several different varieties of birds at this feeder sponsored by Perky Pet.
Baby Hummingbirds are fed a nectar + insect diet. The mother who rears the chicks consumes the nectar + insects then regurgitates to feed the chicks.
Here’s a picture I found on twitter
