We caught this beautiful male Ruby-throated Hummingbird during our bird banding session on 5/22/14.
Note P10 same width as P9.
This is a different bird from 2013-12-14 bird, throat is light.
A nice comparison of Black-chinned and Ruby-throated Hummingbirds.
Width of P10 relative to P9 clearly shown in both birds.
New arrival. Has completed wing molt while the one that was here all winter still has old P9 and P10
Both photographed today.
I had no idea Hummingbirds nectared on Zinnias.
