Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Photo of the Week (June 14th, 2020)

(archive photos of the week here)

My favorite summer yard visitor! Ruby-throated Hummingbirds show up in my yard every year, between May 5th and May 7th, like clockwork. Always a male first.  By late August, males start disappearing, and the last female or immature bird departs in late September.  They're not here for very long, but I SO love having them around.  This is from our yard in Brandon, South Dakota this spring..
