Hi Sheila,

Resin will know for sure. He's beautiful; nice pic!

Yep. Bill is not large enough for Blue Grosbeak, which is the other possibility on plumage.

Edit: to clarify, a first-summer bird (~10 months old), which is why it isn't all blue. Pelle's post wasn't there when I started my post!

I believe this is a Black Chinned Hummer, but I didn't know if they should be in my area yet. The Ruby Throateds have been here a couple weeks, but he definitely doesn't have red on his throat. He is the first hummer I've seen and he's become a real regular already at the feeder on the front porch.

Most of the time you can't see it, but at certain angles I could see a deep purple gorget. I tried for a while to get that angle with the sun to show his purple, but this was the best I could do.

And this was when he snuck up on me. I was standing still leaning against a post, focussed on the feeder, waiting for him (he tends to fly off if he sees me move, but if I'm still he'll come close) when I heard him at the hanging basket on the post right next to me. Then he went down to the ground to sip nectar from the salvia in the bed, then he went for these red verbena before I even had a chance to plant them!

Can you please help me with this first sighting for me?
I was thinking Pine Siskin but when I read, in Sibley's, the length of 5 inches I wasn't so sure anymore. I don't give as much weight to bird length as other determiners but this bird was bigger than a house sparrow. I am sure because there were some in the tree at the same time. Please note the hint of red on the face.
Taken through my kitchen window about a half hour ago.
Thanks so much for your help.
