My FOY Ruby-throated Hummingbird arrived in my Danbury Yard today. I sat by the feeder to see what pictures I could get and ended up seeing the male doing its courtship display to a Chipping Sparrow. Pictures can be viewed by following this link: http://www.jlounsburyphoto.com/blog/?p=2263 Anyone have any idea what it was doing? Was it practicing or just confused?
