Ruby-Throated Hummingbird, female
General bird sexing rule: pimp coloring = male; comparatively drab, female, making it easier for her to blend into surroundings while nesting. Yet exceptions abound, right in our backyards, e.g.:

  • Blue Jay
  • Carolina Chicadee
  • Brown Thrasher

Their coloring appears to remain the same, regardless of breeding status, season, or sex.

Just a quickie little “boidie” tidbit, to feed your bullet journal’s Today I Learned section. 🤗
