PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/22/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: While defending its food source, this young male “Ruby-throat” went into a wing flare as another juvenile Hummer flew past in a whizzing blur. What fun to observe this little trooper, as he begins to grow in the first of the ruby feathers on its gorget (throat patch). It always reminds me of baby teeth. It’s hard to believe that this tiny bird of only three inches long, with a four inch wingspan, was just an egg about the size of a coffee bean, just a few months ago. Now he is zipping back and forth across the yard with blazing speed. He will soon embark on a great adventure, traveling the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. And then in a single flight, some will traverse the open span of water for nine hundred miles, perhaps landing on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Then next spring it will attempt the same crossing again in reverse. Then, if successful, will fly several hundred more miles back up the eastern half of the United States, perhaps to this very same spot. Sometimes amazement comes in tiny packages.
