Hello, I am new to the forum and have a question:

I have these Hummers here, I cant decide if they are Black throat or Ruby Throat

Any ideas

I live in Texas and the red throated hummers have a very definate color on the throat. I think that yours are the black throated variety.

You can check out for photos of various species of hummingbirds. They also tell you which types you can hope to see in your region.
