A male Ruby Throated Hummingbird does an emergency landing maneuver to land on the feeder without crashing; just after he has fought off two other males and hurried back to beat them to the feeder.

We have an abundance of these beautiful birds here at out home in Southeast Missouri, USA. It is a joy to watch their antics as they buzz around the feeder each day.
