Black Chinned Hummingbird

I attended an art fair in Salida, Colorado in 2009. Outside our motel room there were several hummingbird feeders. Early one morning I was able to photograph these little birds as they fed from one of the feeders. We have ruby throated hummingbirds in Central Illinois where I live but I haven’t been able to get a really good picture of one of them.

The Black-chinned Hummingbird is a habitat generalist, found in the western United States in lowland deserts and mountainous forests, and in natural habitats and very urbanized areas as long as there are tall trees and flowering shrubs and vines.
