The ruby-throated hummingbird is the only hummingbird that nests east of the Mississippi River.
Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday
Love the picture! I’ve never seen a hummingbird stay still long enough for a picture (or my reflexes are really that slow…)
I was thinking that very thing!
Check out Lilly’s hummers. She has some wonderful pictures of them.
My daughter is the hummingbird whisperer. I faithfully hung and refreshed that feeder for two, three, maybe even four years, with nary a visitor. A friend of my daughter’s gave her a feeder, and I think she had hummers the same day. So, I gave her my feeder, too. This was taken through the window of her back door. I just kept snapping, and ended up with this one.
Love the cute hummers, great shot!
Thanks, Eileen. I only see them when I visit my daughter, and I need to practice shooting them. They are quick.
I have a hummingbird feeder above my porch swing. I love to sit in it while they feed. I also like to see them at the flowers outside my kitchen window.
They are a joy to watch, and so pretty, Jayne. How nice that you have places to view them.
They are cute little buggers–I mean that in a loving way
I could tell there was emotion in your voice, TBM.
Sweet little thing. Now that will make you think of summer!
Our local Wild Birds Unlimited recommends we hang our feeders as early as April. I tried, and gave up. I was told they love catmint, but I have that planted on the side of the house where I can’t conveniently see if they visit.
Great close up pic!
that’s what we get here, too. i think west texas might have a chance to get others.
My doctor lived in Arizona for a few years, Theresa, he said there are a lot of them there.
What a beautiful bird – a real treasure of a photo.
Thanks, Lou. They are so tiny.
I love hummingbirds. They’re like little angels flitting about. We used to feed them and had several each year. Then we got Babycat and stopped feeding them and still each year one or two fly by often feeding on our flowers and veggie blossoms.
That’s a honey of a shot. It’s hard to get a photo of one so clearly. Great job!
Thanks, E.C. I didn’t realize they actually perch–if only for a moment.
Flying jewels! Nice photo! I love to hear the buzz of their wings.
Thanks, Wallace. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard them, this was taken from inside my daughter’s house. Now I have something else to look forward to this year!
Ruby-throated are the only ones I’ve seen, too. They are quite entertaining to watch.
They are rather feisty, considering their size, Jen.
I’d love to see a hummer – but I’m in the wrong part of the world for them!
When you take shots of fast moving birds in a bouncy boat, you have to learn to love the delete button!
Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

You’ll just have to visit the other hemisphere, Stewart! I don’t think I’d do well on a bouncy boat, pictures would be the least of my worries.
I’ve always wanted to catch a humming bird! Should be no problem… they hardly move at all, right?!
Thanks! That should be no problem at all, Robert. I know where you can find some–in the summer, anyway. That’ll keep you busy for awhile…
Love it. Makes me thing of warmer days, though I am enjoying the cold.
I’m glad you’re enjoying the cold, Lenore, but I can’t wait for it to warm up again. I should probably get busy and do all that INDOOR stuff, like housework!
This is a great picture, Patti! I love hummingbirds.
Thanks, Laura! They are quite unique.
