A female hummingbird generally arrives at her breeding grounds with one thing on her mind—starting a family. She will be looking for a good nesting area where food and shelter are plentiful. Males will be waiting to capture her attention with their bright, flashy gorgets and their acrobatic flight skills.
"One female at the feeder today. Now we have both male and female. Let the fun begin." Mayfield, Kentucky 04/19/14
