    I think the question is in the “tagged” section.

    Tigger, just type whatever you want to ask (or say) right in the reply box.    Very few people use or read the “tagged”.

    And I’m no expert on Hummers but I’m going to take a guess & say Black Chinned.

    Notice how the entire head looks dark, with no real green showing?  And the tail looks short?  And the bill looks thin and fragile?  These are all characteristic of Black-chinned Hummingbirds – adult male to be specific.   Where are you in South Texas?

    Great pic!  You may get some migrating from the northeast to winter in your area, such as the ruby throated!  Then they will go back north after the winter, in April.
