Two in my yard in Lakeland, FL

On Sunday, I had an adult male ruby-throated come to one of my feeders. I discovered he has a band on his left leg, so he is not one of the birds banded previously in my yard since my banders use the right leg. Then that afternoon, an immature male came in to feed as well. Both are still here but I fear they will move on as they don't usually stay the winter this early in the fall.

Here is the adult male. You can see the band on its left leg.
