Look up pics of the Broad-tailed hummingbird. Those and the Black-chinned are the most common. The other one you may see is the Rufous. The male Rufous are cool looking with orange/red/gold throats.

I love to be on the deck of the cabin with the morning coffee (or the evening beverage). I have 4 feeders right off the deck they hit very well.
I filled all 4 of them,and the one in back of the cabin Weds.
When I got back to the cabin yesterday, 4 of the 5 were empty and the other 1 was maybe 1/2 full. They have been very thirsty lately...…...

I've had the problem of yellowjackets chasing the hummingbirds off the feeders. I found this gadget at the local Ace Hardware. This is the second morning and it seems to be working.

The only ones I've seen were in the Mt. Naomi wilderness area!

This one attacked me on the deck last year while I was staining.

I'm excited for their return as well. We hung up two feeders in the yard last year for the first time, and they entertained us all summer. Occasionally we'd get as many as 8 or 10 at once.
