Ruby-throated hummingbird Flagstaff
We have what looks like a male ruby-throated hummingbird at our feeder in Flagstaff.  I'm saying "what looks like" because it has an orange throat (otherwise it's a dead ringer for ruby-throated; it's definitely not a rufous or Allen's).  According to David Sibley, ruby-throats can show orange throats in fall: http://www.sibleyguides.com/2011/08/prog...d-mystery/

I'll try to get a picture if possible--he hasn't been cooperative so far.

RE: Ruby-throated hummingbird Flagstaff
Definitely get a picture! It's getting awfully late for hummingbirds of any kind (though I still have a few visiting my feeders), and most adult males have moved on. So, it's likely something quite interesting. Here's a link to some useful pictures put together by Sheri Williamson of all age classes of Ruby-throated: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tzunun/gal...784888018/

The ruby-throated hummingbird is still here as of Saturday October, 15th. He only seems to visit the feeder occasionally--I didn't see him for a several day period ending yesterday.
