Description

The regular/expected hummingbird species in the Austin area are Black-chinned and Ruby-throated. Which species predominates at backyard feeders depends upon what part of the area you live in. In my area, 15 miles west of Austin, about 95% of the hummers are Black-chinned, but we get a handful of Ruby-throated as well. This is a male Ruby-throated.

Description

We saw a female hummingbird working through the branches of a hackberry tree and she went into a nest. Ruby-throated and Black-chinned Hummingbirds are the only breeding species in this area of Texas and either can be at this location. I hope to be able to photograph this nest when the female is feeding the young. At present we suspect she is on eggs and did not want to disturb her further so after a few quick shots, we left.
