An immature male Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. A popular summer visitor to Ontario with their arrival a sign that summer is close.
My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week was chosen because it won’t be long before the Hummingbirds will be heading south for the winter.
I selected this photo of the species because it’s a personal favourite which was also published in a calendar. I’m say it’s an immature male because there appears to be some darker flecks in the feathers on the birds throat. That will be the ruby feathers starting to appear.
It’s also a slightly late contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: August Alphabet must have two M’s in the word prompt.
