Ruby Throat Hummer
I about made myself sick the other day when I opened my garage door backed out whent to the store came back and found a male Ruby Throat on my garage floor. He was already gone.
He must of flown in without my seeing him, I was only gone 20 minutes or so and it about broke my heart.
I keep 3 feeders full all thje time and they are my favorite spring - summer - fall bird.
I have rescued about 5 hummers when they find their way into my garage and back porch but this is the 1st one I lost.
They are the most amazing bird and I always look forward to April 19 (They arrive like clockwork).
My Dad got me interested in hummers and birds in general and I do all I can to help them, however, losing this guy really hurt.
I know I am going to watch more closely from now on.
