oOo-Black-chinned Hummingbird

I  have been trying to capture this male, Black-chinned Hummingbird for awhile. He is very shy, and smart about staying hidden in the trees. These photos aren’t the best, but show his black chin and purple band around the neck.

In the photo below a female Broad-tailed Hummingbird is sitting on a pine branch looking east. Perhaps she is reflecting on her day or contemplating her upcoming, long journey south.

It makes us feel good to provide these tiny birds with energy, in the form of syrup, to assist them along on their long, difficult journey.

 

Happy Dreams, Good Night
