This mature Ruby Throated Hummingbird sits near one of the feeders at our home here in Southeast Missouri watching out for other hummingbirds. He would rather protect his nine hole feeder from all other hummers than sit and feed himself.

    Excellent Byron! My adult males are gone as they do every year around Labor day weekend. The immatures now are enjoying attack free access to my feeders. Enjoy yours my friend. ~Sam

  • Mine are still here, mostly immature males but very few females or mature males except for this bully.
