I knew this hummingbird looked like a Ruby-throated, but I had never seen one with the orange colored throat. Turns out, according to my googling and my expert birding friend, it is probably that color due to feather wear.
In all my years of feeding Hummingbirds, I had never witnessed this before. It was definitely interesting!

This hawk, and I don’t know the species name, was sitting in the rain last week with his wings out and his feathers ruffled. I guess it thought that would help. It was just lightly sprinkling at the time.
