Female Black-chinned Hummingbird feeding on flowers at the very top of a tall Mimosa tree. Camp Verde, Arizona
The black-chinned hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri) is 3.25 in long. Adults are metallic green above and white below with green flanks. Their bill is long, straight and very slender. The adult male has a black face and chin, a glossy purple throat band and a dark forked tail. The female has a dark rounded tail with white tips and no throat patch; they are similar to female ruby-throated hummingbirds.
Black-chinned Hummingbird eggs are about the size of a coffee bean. The nest, made of plant down and spider and insect silk, expands as the babies grow.
