Ruby-throated Hummingbird

It was a sad day at the Gresham house hold today. Last night as we left the house for dinner we saw a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird on the feeder. She seemed slumped over and pretty sluggish. When we got home the bird was still there. I have seen hummingbirds perched on feeders after a long migration flight so I hoped that she would have gotten some sugar and rest and taken off in the morning, but sadly she was still there this morning. I got closer and could tell she hadn't survived.
