  1. Oh, god. Warning: blurry photos ahead. This was in July, in El Cajas National Park. First, a raptor. I suspect it to be a carunculated caracara based on the white wing-lining, upper tail, and rump but blackish breasts. Here's close-ups, along with the full pictures for reference: Next, two hummingbirds. The former was dark-colored and struggling to take off just by the visitor center, with white eye-spots and few other identifying features: The latter was similarly dark, almost purple, and perched in shrub near the visitor center. Finally, a pair of thankfully slightly-less-blurry sierra-finches (or seedeaters?). One spotted in the park proper... ... and the other, streakier, in a parking-lot. Sorry again for the crappy images (and if I don't know the netiquette here) and thanks in advance!
  2. We are having abnornally cold weather. Hard freeze last night and the next 3 nights. Daytime high today did not break 32. Tomorrow will be a little better, mid 30s, and Christmas Day, lower 40s. We have a couple of Rufous Hummingbirds feeding in the yard. They first tried the Salvia coccinea but it is not too heavy with blooms right now, so they went for the feeder, which was frozen solid. I put out fresh food, and will bring it in before sunset. My question: Is it ever too cold for the birds to feed on the liquid in the feeders? I would think the little fellows/gals would get hypothermic pretty quickly...although they might warm up quickly the way they move around.
  3. 02 Jan 2023 Baldwin co. AL; At first thouht Rufous, but no rufous wash on sides.

  6. I live in Florida but am visiting Sedona, so I don't know the local gentry. I was in the backyard and saw two birds approx 300 yards away and so were silhouetted, therefore I couldn't see detail. They would leave the branch, hover like a hummingbird, even darting laterally, and did so such that I could see that their wingspace was a blur of movement. Then, it made a downward swoop in the shape of a "J" SO fast, like nothing I've ever seen a living creature do. I'm not being hyperbolic. It reminded me of the video of Navy pilots describing UFOs that they say moved like nothing they've ever seen. (For reference, in this same time frame I saw Woodhouse Scrub Jays, Lesser Goldfinches, Cardinals, Cassin's/House Finches, and possibly a Phainopepla.) Thank you
  7. I live in the Northern part of New Jersey and I'm trying to attract the Rubythroated Hummingbird. I have a hummingbird feeder out mixed with a 4/1 ratio of water to sugar and I recently just planted a Trumpet vine nearby (although it hasnt produced any flowers yet). What else can I do or am I wasting my time in this area?
  8. Good morning, All. We had a hummingbird come into the yard this morning that did not act like our usual RTs. It seemed large, had a louder/buzzier sounding flight, and did not twitter at all, even when close to us. It seemed confused by the feeder--like he/she did not know what to do. It did nectar at several flowers. We thought it might just be a young RT, but it seemed larger. We occasionally have other species of hummers here. We could not see features/colors well enough to describe. 27 June 2020 Baldwin co. AL (coastal)
  9. Hi, are there several kinds of Hummingbirds in Ste Lucia? Or are those all the same kind? I saw those in April last year. Thx
  10. Hello again, I need help with another identification. My bird app says this hummingbird could be one of three species: Anna's, Costa's, or Black-chinned. I think it's an Anna's Hummingbird but the yellow in the beak is throwing me a curve. Location: Atascadero, CA Where: At Feeder Date: 10/25/2019 I hope someone can help me out with this one. Thanks in advance.
  11. I was wondering if someone on here can identify this hummingbird? I think it might be a Anna's Hummingbird but wanted a second opinion. Thanks in advance.hu
  12. HI, I saw this hummingbird in Ontario today. Is it a Juvenile Ruby-throated hummingbird? Is it why its throat is green? thx
  13. Hi, I saw this hummingbird yesterday in Toronto. Is it a female or an immature? There was a male there as well. thx

  15. I suppose this is a rufous or Allen's hummingbird? Texas 78070 on 12/3/2018
  16. 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!
  17. This lovely hummer was humming on the zinnias this morning in Chester County, PA. Is it a ruby-throated perhaps? Or still young? https://flic.kr/p/LY2KvW
