  1. Thank you for your help. There actually was a second hummer , but it was chased away by the male ruby throat. Without my lousy binoculars (and him showing off) the most outstanding thing about him is the white collar. That’s what I was going by. Thanks again!
  2. well! I found my binoculars that only barely work,the. Irdcame down to feed, the sun came out from a cloud and he turned his head. Aha! The ruby red throat came out brilliantly! Thank you all for your help. In the end, he finally de died to show himself for me.
  3. I have a remote camera that I will set up on a sapling near ythe feeder as soon as the wind dies down. It’s gusting to 35 mph at the moment, so all that movement will mess things up. Bird has only been to the feeder a few times today, I guess because of the wind. He had some maneuvering to do this morning!
  4. Definitely not a ruby throat. I had them back in NY. I’ll look up black chinned. It’s Head is dark, throat white, green back and wing coverlets, dusty front. I have an Audubon remote camera. I set it up on the feeder pole but it spooked him. Will attach it to a maple sapling maybe 10’ away tomorrow.
  5. I stand corrected. I would have thought they’d be bigger though based on an influx of Evening Grosbeaks we had back on Long Island some 30 years ago. The snows were terrible in the Midwest for a few years. It wasn’t much funin NY either!
  6. Looks like it’s too small to be a grosbeak. They’re kind of big. Looks more like a purple finch or house finch. They’re pretty similar. I stand corrected.

  7. Replying to Neal Harris’ post. Guess I mis-posted. Sorry!
  8. Cardinals are bigger and a red-red. Yours is a more purple-red. 😁
  9. I have a very similar one (a second one too for a brief moment, but different coloring) here in Enid, OK. Comes in the afternoon to the feeder and seems to stand guard over it!

  11. From what I’ve been able to gather, this is a Magnificent Hummingbird? I don’t even see it listed, so now I’m not sure. This was taken in Enid, OK. August 22 mid to late afternoon. Sorry for the poor quality photos. It looks a lot like the one posted from Idaho. Thanks!
