Not a Hummingbird
Clearly, this is not a hummingbird.
It’s a Gila Woodpecker, male, on a hummingbird feeder.
Birds are smart.
That is, they always welcome an easy meal. And this Gila Woodpecker has found it in a hummingbird feeder.
This photo was taken at the Casa de San Pedro B&B, near Hereford, AZ.
I’ll note that this B&B offers wonderful accommodations plus fantastic breakfasts.
And, of course, they are in a birding paradise. Learn more about this B&B by clicking on the link below in Birding Resources.

Help Birds Tip
Woodpeckers are cavity nesters. So they depend upon old trees. If possible, leave old trees alone. Or, trim only the parts that pose a risk.
