Here are the hummingbirds that visited yesterday. We also saw a male and female black-chinned hummingbird. (Not at the feeder) Also. the shimmery part of a male hummingbird’s throat is called a gorget.

During the summer of 2014 my children and I observed a Black-chinned hummingbird making a nest. We watched while she made the nest, sat on the eggs, hatched, fed them and then witnessed them flying away.
