  1. We are down to two hummingbirds and only three feeders hanging now. And guess what… the two hummingbirds still fight for dominance. What a hoot.

    I believe the three in the photo are females. Although the ruby red gorget or throat would positively identify the males, another way is by the tail. The female’s tail is more rounded and ends in white tips. I think all three have white on the tips of the tails.

    Another reason to suspect they are females is that the males migrate first leaving the ladies behind. Someone should correct me if I’m wrong!
