This leucistic Ruby-throated Hummingbird was photographed by Barbara Stewart in her garden at Northeast Harbor, Maine, in July 2000. Thanks to Barbara for allowing us to publish the photo in the Operation RubyThroat Gallery. (And thanks to Sally Conyne and Sandy Scheiten for sending the photo.)

Gary Springer of Carnesville GA has a theory that you will attract more hummingbirds if you provide so many feeders that an agressive individual will be unable to defend all of them. We see at least a baker's dozen of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in this photo, so perhaps Gary's idea is worth trying. (We're sure it would make feeder manufacturer Perky-Pet very happy.) Photo taken in 2002.
