I'll do that, but there are indications that this might be a hoax. It looks like the photographer took an old picture and photoshopped in some snow.

Hi Eric,

"Western Massachusetts Bird Photography" yields no results when searching groups on Facebook. Could you provide a link to the photo? Or save it and attach it?

Somebody has posted a photo of a Hummingbird in the Western Massachusetts Bird Photography Facebook Group. The photographer reports the image was taken today in Easthampton, MA.

To me it looks like a female Ruby-throated but I know female Black-chinned is very similar.
