Description

A veritable "contention of hummingbirds" around the feeders as the fall migration begins. Yesterday sighted the first ruby throat with) his brilliant gorget at this same location but alas he was too fast for a photo. Estimate 10 to 12 hummers visiting this feeder at sunset.

Description from Wikipedia

Traditionally, the bird order Apodiformes contained three living families: the swifts (Apodidae), the tree swifts (Hemiprocnidae), and the hummingbirds (Trochilidae). In the Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy, this order is raised to a superorder Apodimorphae in which hummingbirds are separated as a new order, Trochiliformes. With nearly 450 species identified to date, they are the most diverse order of birds after the passerines.
