Ruby-throated hummingbird juvenile

Archilochus colubris


I have identified this as a ruby-throated hummingbird juvenile (or it could be a young male). It does not have much color. Young males look like females until their first winter, after which time they will get their adult male plumage.


Indiana Dunes State Pk Chesterton Indiana. They provide nector feeders in their nature center so hummingbirds can be seen and appreciated.
