That second pic slays me. "I give up! Don't eat me!" Too, too precious!

Yes Sharad, I was doing an internship at a bird observatory at the time. The birds were caught, banded and released as a part of their spring migration monitoring program.

I don't think it is. Alice is right!
Great pic though.

The ruby-throated hummingbird is the only hummingbird species that occurs in Ontario, so I'm quite certain that's who it is.
