A Little Hummer With A Grip

Every year during the first week of April, or maybe its May, a little female ruby throat hummingbird shows up in the crab apple t ree right by the back patio of our house. We never see a male. .By the end of July little "fatherless" hummers are chasing each other around in the tree.
