Hummingbird Migration Still Going On

Hummingbird migration is still happening, yeah, we still get to see some hummingbirds. Here are some photos of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds I recently took on our property. These are most likely young birds. Juvenile hummingbirds of both sexes look like the adult female, but they often have paler edges to their crown feathers, making them look minutely scaled.
Keep your feeders up, cleaned and refilled.
Next year plant some red, tubular flowers. These are feeding on Lady in Red Salvia, a great hummer plant.
