Magnificent set of hummingbirds, whatever their specific IDs. Very sharp, with nice backgrounds; and the last one is a particularly interesting composition. Excellent!

Splendid set Birdie, every one of them. The background, pose, color and clarity for #2 is my favorite.



Very much appreciated Tom, thank you.

As always another beautiful thread!

I am excited to hear my area will be around 60 degrees beginning of next week!

Excellent set, indeed. For me, too, the last one is it - composition, sharpness, background, etc. Thanks!

I'm with Tim birdie. The last shot is superb. So how long did it take you to glue the Fruit Loops in place in 2? These are all extra nice Birdie, but 2 and 4 also stand out ~ Ron

#1 and #5 stand out for me (and standing out in such a brilliant set really means something). Love the way the bird pops off the glorious bg in the first one. The last is a really nice comp. The fat magnolia buds are interesting in themselves. Throw in the hummer and you have a super nice image. Excellent set Birdie!!



Ken you are so very kind . Thank you very much

These are beautiful, Birdie! The first one is well exposed, well composed, filled with interesting color, and as sharp as is possible. Great set.

Nice Birdie, the Rufous are very hard to tell for me also,
so if the have green on their backs I call them Allen's

Thanks Tim , that's about how I ID them as well

+1. According to the Sibley guide, only 5% of Rufous HBs have green backs, so the most likely ID for the first one is Allen's (and probably a female, based on the fact that it doesn't have a full gorget).

John



Thank you very much John for the confirmation on the ID.

As ususal Birdie, these are very well done. The Rufous/Allen call is difficult. My understanding is that the pattern of the spread tail is the determining factor. Based solely on range maps, Rufous would be the most likely bet in Louisiana. You might want to check out the "Hummer Bird Study Group" who do a lot of hummer banding in your area.



Thank you . Last year one of the bankers, came and banned one in my yard. It was a rufous. I can't read the band number on the one in the last shot, but do wonder if it is the same bird.
