Birds of the Sanctuary: Ruby-Throated Hummingbird
I've only ever seen the females of these tiny yet fiercely territorial birds. I also felt fortunate to have caught one perching on a branch out in the open. The most I've seen is four, although a neighbor claims they see nearly a dozen each year. I used to be able to leave my hummingbird feeder hanging from a bush, but lately the raccoons have been going after it, so I must bring it in every night.
