p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · They're Back ! First Ruby of 2017


Saw this male ruby the other day. Finally got a few shots, unfortunately he seems to like the most shaded part of the garden later in the day .

Notice in the second shot that he has an injured bill. Doesn't seem to interfere with his feeding, hope he'll be okay.


Your nits, crits and comments are always appreciated.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy,

Birdie

Beautiful Ruby, Birdie. 2 excellent images. I like #2 more because the purple background make that Ruby look so nice.

Well done, Birdie. Our feeder awaits. We had a male with a very similar injury last fall. Didn't seem to be an issue. I have to wonder if it is the same bird. "It's a small world", as they say.

Well, a harbinger of good things to come I would say Birdie. A little sword fighting amongst males possibly led to the injury. Lovely shots!

Wait, what They're back already?? This is an odd Spring to be sure, but I'm glad to see your guest, Birdie! It amazes me how the wild things can survive with injury and impacts and seemingly do quite well.

That your garden is already / still offering such nice complimentary colors in its flowers helps make these beauties beautiful.

Thanks for posting.

Roberta, great pp on those flying jewels. When looking at your pictures Tinker Bell comes to mind.

Kim, it is an amazing thing . With the exception of 3 nights of below freezing , we had the warmest winter on record.
Lots of my plants survived without issue, the porter weed being one.

Oh, it's sixteen degrees Fahrenheit this morning where I live, so these really make me long for warmer weather. Well done, as always.
