Subject: Black-chinned Hummingbird Update
The Black-chinned Hummingbird in Beaufort, NC was seen again today and is
looking much like an adult. Unfortunately, he is quite unpredictable and
more people missed him than saw him. He must be spending a lot of time at
one or more other feeders, or at natural nectar sources. There are many
other feeders in the neighborhood, but was not seen on a scouting walk by a
visiting birder. Today he visited my feeders at 09:55, 10:35, 11:12,
11:45, and one more time at 17:50. I will be at the store by 7 AM
tomorrow. Birders are welcome to come in and watch from inside. The best
spot outside is halfway up the ramp to our door. From there you can see
all three feeders at one time.

I managed a short video showing his characteristic flight. You can see a
larger video on my Youtube channel. A smaller version is embedded in my
eBird checklist linked below.
