If a hummingbird like that came to my feeder. I would never leave home. Ever. I would just watch the feeder all day, waiting for that cutie to come back.

Very cool. On a hummingbird side note, the first ever US sighting of an Amethyst-throated Hummingbird was captured on the West Texas live feeder cam not long ago.

I haven't seen one like that but will never forget my first hummingbird sighting. I was motorcycling some NJ backroads and stopped for lunch at a country airport cafe. There was a feeder hanging right outside of the booth I was sitting in and no sooner had I started wondering if those feeders really attracted birds, a Ruby-Throated one appeared, it could not possibly have been timed any better.

It's not an albino. It has some pigment along with dark eyes.
