Black Chinned Hummingbird?

Recommended Posts

Not likely. On immature and female archilochus hummingbirds, seeing the shape of their primaries is the best way to tell RTHU from BCHU. Given time of year, and range, this is almost assuredly a Ruby-throat. The "purple" you reference on the throat is actually missing feathers.
