I just saw a little orange throated hummer in my back yard.  I live in Moyock NC.  Usually we see ruby's.  I've never seen and orange and googled it and ended up here.  this year, from the very return of them,  we are getting the tiniest hummers I've ever seen.  It's amazing.

I just saw an orange-throated hummingbird yesterday, 8/7/12, at Island Pond, VT, which is in the northeast corner of Vermont about 20 miles from Canada.  It had a very bright orange throat.
