Don’t miss this amazing new video on Ruby-throated Hummingbirds filmed in the Urquhart Butterfly Garden by Mark Williams.

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are a regular but elusive visitor to the Garden. We are rapidly approaching the peak of their autumn migration and several should be reliably present each day for the next week or so. Be sure to check any tall, tube-like red or blue flowers in the garden or in your own garden this week. Be patient, move slow and visit in the morning or evening. We hope you get a chance to observe these incredible creatures.
