Hello, Mr. Blackchin

One of the things we enjoyed greatly on our trip to Louisiana was the native birds. This black-chinned hummingbird greeted us often by perching on the feeder right outside the window next to the dining room table.

One of the things we enjoy greatly about our new home in California is watching the hummingbirds in the cedar trees in our back yard. Jim had a few books on hummingbirds. We flipped through them and tried to identify the ones we have seen at home by memory. I think I have seen Anna's hummingbird and the Rufous among others. They are fascinating little creatures.
