First Hummingbird of the year

Yeah! This morning, while enjoying breakfast on the back porch, I noticed a male Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

It is the time of year, around 1st of March, that the males show up in my area to check out the territories.

In a few weeks the females will be here as well. By then the males will fly their loopings in the sky to attract and show off their flying skills to the girls :)


  1. So glad they're back! My firebush just started blooming so I'll be watching for them too.

  2. Great that you are able to capture the fast flying bird.
    I still cannot get my camera on time to capture my nectar loving sunbirds coming to my garden.
