Sunrise hike to cattail pond
55 degrees F and windy at start 77 degrees F and calm at finish
2 male hummingbirds observed dive bombing each other at a bush too fast to photo and too fast to verify neck/gorget color , and then they were gone
Within the past week several male Black-chinned Hummingbirds have showed up at my feeder. Got a quick shot showing the purple band below the black throat to confirm the ID with a photo.
P10 equal width to P9
therefore Black-chinned rather than Ruby-throated.
-Width P10 less than P9
-Bright green back
-Large drop in width from P7 to P6
-all point to Ruby-throated Hummingbird rather than Black-chinned.
