Hummers

We have had alot of hummingbird activity at our feeders this summer.  I think we are making nectar just about every day at least every other day.  So one pleasant evening I tried to capture some as they flew in for the evening feeding. 

her tongue is sticking out.








I think these are all ruby throated hummers but I'm not positive about the hummer in the second image because of the different spots on the throat. I googled hummer images and some indicate this could be a male juvenile ruby throated, but it kind of looks like a female broad tailed. Their range however is in the west.   

Maybe one of you bird experts out there can verify.

Lovely Bird. Awesome captured
As always I'm so jealous of your hummingbirds as we have nothing remotely like them. You've made some beautiful images.

Hello Felicia!:) Well, these are all fantastic images. As we don't see them in Portugal, it's always a pleasure to see these beautiful birds. I'm sure someone will help with the ID. Have a good day!:)
These are tremendous images.

Awesome photos! We only get them for a brief period at the end of summer before migration. I'm going with a juvenile male Ruby in your second photo. With very rare exceptions, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are the only species east of the Mississippi.
