Two Hummers

We now have two hummingbirds in our yard, a female Ruby-throated, which Fred banded a while ago and a newly arrived male Black-chinned. This is the first Black-chinned we have had in our yard. At first the female Ruby wasn't as impressed with his arrival as we were but they seem to be getting along as I write. I put an extra feeder out so they wouldn't have to compete as much especially since the freeze pretty much killed all our flowering hummer plants! Hopefully he will stay so that FRed can slap a band on him next weekend.
