We are getting a lot of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds coming through on their southbound migration, but I don't think this one is a Ruby-throat. I am thinking it might be a female Black-chinned, because of the long wings with the rounded end shape. I am located in south Central Texas, USA.
When I lived in the Houston area about 20 years ago, I made a trip to the Jones State Forest and did get to see one of these endangered woodpeckers at a nest hole, on a Long Leaf Pine. Congrats on a great photo, Joe!
Here's the close-up shot showing more details of the deformed bill. Not sure if it's been damaged or whether it was born like this. It seems to be surviving, so hope the extreme cold that is heading our way, doesn't kill off the birds. There will be snow Sunday night and freezing temperatures.
In 2013 we had a trip back to the UK to visit family and friends. While we were staying in Yorkshire, our friends recommended visiting the Nosterfield Local Nature Reserve, a small reserve a few miles away. Plenty of birds as well as butterflies.
