The only hummingbird that inhabits the eastern parts of the U.S. Metallic. Metallic green above with whitish underparts, sides and flanks are dusky green. Male has a brilliant red throat patch that might appear blackish under certain light conditions. Female's throat is whitish. A close relative, the Black-chinned Hummingbird, lives in the western U. S. Juveniles and females of these two species are almost impossible to tell apart. The migration corridor of both species is through Texas during September. During third week of September I have counted 70+ in my yard. Winters in Mexico and Central America. Flies nonstop from the Coastal Bend to Yucatan.
