Wintering Black-chinned Hummingbird in Louisiana

This immature male Black-chinned Hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri) was hanging in a lush patch of turk’s cap (or wax mallow, Malvaviscus) on Grand Isle, Louisiana, yesterday. He’s either a late migrant or a wintering bird; Black-chinned Hummingbird is one of the western species that winters in low numbers across southern Louisiana.
