Need help with an I.D. of a Hummingbird.

Recommended Posts

I think it's a Costa's hummingbird.  I took a similar picture a couple weeks ago and posted it here to get help with the id.

I'm actually thinking Black-chinned on this one. Costa's is similar, but the bill wouldn't be quite as long, and the gorget would be more split into prongs.

Green forehead, purple flared gorget, decurved bill, long tail.  This is a Lucifer Hummingbird.

Thank you, hbvol50 and IvoryBillHope that's what I was told. A very rare bird in the USA, and a lifer. Thanks once again!
