Ruby throated Hummingbirds

Ruby-throated Hummingbird

The Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) is a stunning species of hummingbird that thrives across Texas, boasting iridescent red throat feathers and a unique curved bill – black on the upper mandible and orange-yellow underneath. With an average length measuring 3 to 4 inches, this formidable flyer can be found in open woods, backyards, parks and gardens alike – constantly flitting to capture small insects like flies, mosquitoes or moths using their long slender beaks; while primarily nourishing themselves with sweet nectar from flowers.
