The Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) is a species of hummingbird that generally spends the winter in Central America, Mexico, and Florida, and migrates to Canada and other parts of Eastern North America for the summer to breed. It is by far the most common hummingbird seen east of the Mississippi River in North America.
The White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) is a small songbird of the nuthatch family common across much of temperate North America. It is stocky, with a large head, short tail, powerful bill, and strong feet. It has a black cap, white face, chest, and flanks, blue-gray upperparts, and a chestnut lower belly. Its nine subspecies differ mainly in the color of the body plumage.
Hummingbirds are such fascinating birds. Great photo!
Thanks so much. 🙂
Both birds are beautiful, HJ. I like the position of the Nuthatch, a bit of acrobatic reaching for tasty morsels!
Thank you very much, Chris. 🙂
