Juvenile Male Ruby Throated Hummingbird Displaying His Throat Feathers
Photograph - Photo
Photographic artwork by Cindy Treger. Photographed near Lake Meade, East Berlin, PA.
This juvenile male ruby-throated hummingbird, Archilochus colubris, was fluffing his feathers as he perched on a branch. It seems odd that he is getting his ruby red throat feathers before all of his feathers have filled in.
I authored and included many of my hummingbird photos in a book titled "Ruby-throated Hummingbird Facts and Photos." It has many hummingbird facts that are sure to fascinate you. It is available through Amazon.
