Summertime Nature in New Jersey.

Birds of the day viewed in my backyard: Mourning Dove, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Blue Jay, Tufted Titmouse, Gray Catbird, House Finch, American Goldfinch. I have seen the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds for several days now. This is the first time I got an image this year. They have been attracted to the Canna, Gladiolas, and Snapdragon flowers, as well as a new hummingbird feeder.
