Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Ruby-throated Hummingbird
This female Ruby-throated Hummingbird makes frequent stops at the feeder in my yard. There is also a male Hummingbird that stops in from time to time.

Last week the female was chittering in the tree near the feeder, her head was going back and forth like she was watching a tennis match. She was watching the male Hummingbird put on an aerial display for her; he was zigging and zagging masterfully. I hope baby hummingbirds will appear at my feeder this year.
