I put a chair out not far from the feeder.
The air was full of zooming, buzzing, high pitched chirping entities.
But they didn’t want to eat from the feeder.
They all sat on branches and flexed their throats to catch the rays of the sun.
Or not to catch those rays: the sun was intermittent.
I hear they do that to attract the girls.
I say that because the ones that I am posting here were all boys.
And girls don’t have much on their throats to flex and catch the rays of the sun.
Besides, they are too smart to waste their time and energy doing that.
Here are some images of male rufous hummingbirds doing their thing.
It is interesting that the color varies with the angle to the sun.
