Jim Verity of Jenkinsburg GA appears to have a bit of red in his beard--which certainly would explain the proximity of this Ruby-throated Hummingbird that was hanging around the backyard feeder in Summer 2002.

Gary Springer of Carnesville GA apparently has a new way to attract Ruby-throated Hummingbirds to his yard. See, you take a quarter and drill a hole in it and then attach it to a branch with a twist tie and the hummingbirds will come down and try to make change. (Nah, Gary was just using the quarter as a reference to show the size of the hummer. Photo taken about 1996.)
