Ruby-throated Hummingbird

A small hummingbird with a slender, slightly down-curved bill, the Ruby-throated Hummingbird is bright emerald green on the back and crown.  The male has a bright red or “ruby” throat.  It hovers at a flower sipping nectar beating its wings over 50 times a second.  It migrates to Galveston from as far south as Central America across the Gulf of Mexico.
