Some late stragglers to my This Year's Youngsters series. All birds that were born this year in or around my yard. Enjoy!
You can't always tell a young male or female hummingbird from an adult female, but in this case, the striping on this bird's throat helps identify it as a young male Ruby-throated Hummingbird. By the time he returns next spring, he will have the beautiful ruby throat...and the feisty attitude!
