Gearing Up! - 17 Aug 2016

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have been making their presence known the past few days. A pair of adults, and two juvenile birds have been emptying the nectar feeder and generally making pests of themselves around the other birds. Just ask the American Goldfinches; apparently the color yellow sets the hummers off on a tear. The goldfinches are being chased all day long!

The juvenile birds don't seem to mind my presence, either. I can stand next to the feeder and photograph them as they come into feed. They'll hover, inspect, and proceed to feed. Its been fun getting their photos.
