Although I always looked forward to our visits to Wyoming and my opportunities to snap pics of bald eagles, moose, elk, bighorn sheep and other large wildlife, they also have a wide variety of birds for our enjoyment. This black-chinned hummingbird was one of dozens of hummingbirds in the yard of this rural residence and was evidently satisfied to sit a spell for a pose.
Interestingly, there are only five known migratory species of hummingbird found in Wyoming. They rarely arrive before May and they leave in August and September -- hummingbirds are considered a rare find in Wyoming in fall, winter and spring -- so there is only a small window for birdwatching these popular creatures.
