Ruby-throated Hummingbird

It is that time of year when the Hummingbirds start swarming the feeders again. After, what is known as post-breeding dispersal, the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds start their migration to the tropics. Many juveniles are coming around trying out all the flowers too. The male Ruby-throated Hummers are still here now, but it seems they leave for southern climes first. The stragglers that hang around are usually the juvenile birds. Hummers leave the Crane Lake area on average around Sept 12th.
