I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging


Not really keeping up with the old blog here, and I'm starting to suspect that backlog of photos is never going to go down.

I think this hummingbird in Fort Tryon Park this week was a female ruby-throated, mostly because that's what most of the hummers people are reporting around here are. Hummingbirds are almost as difficult to identify as they are to photograph (as my many pictures of unidentified hummers from Costa Rica would attest). The colors may only be visible when the light catches them a certain way, so most of them look nothing like the field guides.
