You can clearly see the rows of brown feathers on this little guys throat. He is a young male, probably born and grew up near our home in Southeast Missouri, USA. When he matures those rows of brown feathers will become bright ruby red. Hummingbirds return to the same area each year so I will get to see him as a fully mature male if he survives the migration south this fall and then back here next spring. Of course we have so many of them each year there is no way to tell which one is which ☺
