Hummingbird Sighting
Sightings report image

Date: 09/23/2017

Number: 4

1 female or juvenile at back feeder at 11:50 a.m. Had a more yellow/green sheen to it’s wings.

Saw 1 juvenile male, black on gorget, a tiny bit of red in the right light.

Saw more hummers throughout the day until 7:04 p.m. I could distinguish 4 different ones looking back at all the photos I took.

The hummingbird in this photo was really trying hard to get all the gnats that were flying around.

Editor's Note about Protein Diet:
In addition to nectar, hummers need protein. They eat most any soft-bodied bugs they can swallow whole: fruit flies, gnats, aphids, and tiny spiders, plus their eggs and larvae. If you have an insecticide-free lawn and garden, you’ll be helping hummers find bugs for protein.
