juvenile ruby-throated hummingbird?

Recommended Posts

Central Texas 78070 on 11/16/2018.  I am shooting through a window and the bird is in shade so no iridescence is visible.  It looks like his gorget feathers are beginning to grow in.

Looks like a selasphorus sp to me, but we're not going to reach a definitive ID from this one pic.

It is definitely a male ruby-throat.  I saw its gorget illuminated in flight.  I did not get a pic of that, but here is a different view.

Okay, looks good. That clears it up.
