I see Hummingbirds (3 inches in length) regularly at the bright red nectar feeder in my backyard. They have an amazing ability to hover in front of a flower (or the feeder) to sip its nectar and fly backwards away when satisfied. In fall they return to the tropics, many crossing the Gulf of Mexico en route.
I found this one during a walk in the Don Valley:
Although dozens of warbler species pass by in migration, only three species commonly nest in our area:
and American Redstart.
Females are sometimes referred to as “Yellowstarts.”
I found this one in the valley. Perhaps it is a juvenile – showing a little orange.
When sun-rays crown thy pine-clad hills
And summer spreads her hand,
When silvern voices tune thy rills,
We love thee, smiling land. Sir Cavendish Boyle (1849–1916)
I’ve been enjoying the hummingbirds this summer too, but I only see females lately, and yours seems to be a female too. Is there a shortage of males?
