He is just beautiful It is not Ruby throat,, pretty sure. Has a forked tail and solid black throat/head. In one pic there is a little red, but it is the reflection off the feeder. Have been taking lots of pics through the window.

I make it Ruby-throated (sorry!) R-t actually has a more deeply forked tail than B-c, and B-c also has a slightly more strongly curved bill.

oh, ok.. it was probably the lighting and all that wonderful rain we were getting. Have several of the RT already. Lots of red flowers blooming. They love the wild Red Buckeye in my woods and also were on my clivias.
thanks for responding.
