Check this out, while walking through APEC, I spotted this guy flying around a tree. I’m pretty sure it’s a Black-chinned hummingbird, but either way, it’s a frikkin hummingbird. If they’re out and about, where the hell is the rest of Spring ???
The average weight of the male Black-chinned is 3.09 g, while that of the female is 3.42 g. Generally, the female is larger compared to the male.
The adult male black-chinned has a metallic green back, crown, and breast; black gorget with purple throat band; and a white collar. This color characteristic makes Black-chinned the least colorful among all the US hummers. On the other hand, the adult female has a green back and crown; a white breast and throat that have some black spots, buff sides, and white tips on the feathers of the outer tail.
