Balancing Act

Female ruby throated hummingbird at the oriole feeder.

We have had males for about 2 weeks and the females have started arriving.

Archilochus colubris

The Ruby-throated Hummingbird beats its wings about 53 times a second.
The oldest known Ruby-throated Hummingbird was 9 years 1 month old.
