Hummingbirds are New World birds that constitute the family Trochilidae.
Most Ruby-throated Hummingbirds winter between southern Mexico and northern Panama.
The past couple of days I’ve taken hundreds of shots trying to get closer. A tufted tit mouse landed on the branch I had been photographing so I have a great comparison of the size of the ruby throated hummingbird. May get lucky and get a killer close up but they disappear quick this time of year to migrate south.
