It's Hummingbird Month again, and this year we celebrate our fourth annual hummer bonanza by first revisiting the most popular and most widespread hummingbird of them all - the ruby-throated hummingbird. The only hummingbird to regularly breed east of the Mississippi River, this hummer is familiar to many birders, and now the profile is updated and expanded with more information and details to teach you about this familiar flying jewel.
Are ruby-throated hummingbirds visiting your feeders? Share your sightings in the comments!
