Finally got a shot of this sweet little hummingbird in my back yard. 7-20-22. Fisrt spotted in May of this year.
That is cool!
I don’t know…hoping someone can identify her. She is cute!
Looks like a female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird!
Very likely.. or maybe a black-chinned?
Well, Black-Chinned Hummingbirds don’t live in Vermont and the other two species that are found in your area are rare.
You are right…thanks for the info!
Female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird.
She is cute!
Thanks everyone. Will keep an eye out for the male. He was around last year now that I think about it.
Ants trying to get to the nectar?
Oh! I just now saw the ants in your photo. You should probably find a way to deter them.
there is an “ant moat” in both feeders. Just cleaned and replaced nectar yesterday…but will do so again today. Never seen black carpenter ants in there before! Very hot and humid here!
Just cleaned and replaced nectar yesterday. Will repeat today.There are built in “ant moats” in each feeder.
Never seen black carpenter ants in the feeders before. Very hot and humid here…maybe the kooky weather.
We have a ant moat in ours to.I just saw those ants there,but annoying.
I’ve seen tiny flying insects/gnats in the nectar but never the carpenter ants. I cleaned and disinfected and put in fresh nectar. Not sure how much help the “moat” is!
We don’t have a problem with ants because ours is attached to a window.
She’s gorgeous! Great shots!
Thank-you Ella. Hope she has a mate!
We have the sugar ants take over our feeder sometimes. We wash it off with water and re fill
