Black-chinned Hummingbird #0490

White Rock, NM

Archilochus alexandri

One of our newer spring arrivals is the Black-chinned Hummingbird, who has discovered the feeder we put out earlier in the week. Since seeing him for the first time, he makes fairly regular appearances, about every 5 - 15 minutes, in the early morning and late afternoon. The lower throat feathers show a pretty, iridescent violet color when you see him in the right light (click on thumbnail for a larger image)
