Locally uncommon/rare Black-chinned Hummingbird. This particular location gets amazing birds, and in particular, amazing hummingbirds. However, it's on the immediate coast and the lighting is often difficult (see almost always overcast). This is the best I could salvage.

A lot better than my photo of it, but I was there at sunrise.

I have only ever seen that blue once before, in person, they always look purple when I see them. Cool shot.

The earlier in the day the more difficult the light. Your photo is diagnostic though.

It’s pretty wild he has two BCHUs at his feeders right now.
