Black-chinned (Archilochus alexandri)

The more western cousin of the Ruby-throated Hummingbird, the Black-chinned Hummingbird is associated with deciduous and evergreen oak woodlands, riparian forests, chaparral, desert washes, canyon bottoms and our gardens. They are generally duller colored than the Ruby-throated Hummingbird with a shorter tail and longer bill. Their tail is generally more active in hovering.
