My male hummingbird showed itself three times in
a fifteen minute period of time just a while ago. 

While I could see no color 
I did glimpse the bird from the side
as it flew away from the feeder.

I am now almost certain it is a Ruby-throat.
The tail was too long to be a Black-chinned.   :>(
I'll keep watching and hope for a glimpse 
tomorrow with some light.

I have not seen a male RT HU at home since October 1
this year.  My last female/ immature at home this year
was October 16.  My last fall record (female/ immature)
at home has been October 24.
