Ruby-throated hummingbird

Archilochus colubris


This little guy guarded My hummingbird feeder fiercely, not letting any other birds or flying insects near it. I identified this bird mostly by range, it is the only species that I've seen in my area.


Most of the hummingbirds I observed perched in trees on the edge of forests.

I saw your post and the pug picture that you are using. The Pug is actually my dog.
