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.

RE: Hummer ID

OK thanks! I thought that was what they were.
I havent seen any red throats - wish I DID!!!

RE: Hummer ID

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.
