Hummingbirds in Texas

We saw three species of hummingbird on our travels to the Gulf coastal region.  Buff-bellied was commonest and Black-chinned was the scarcer of the three.  We saw several Ruby-throated at High Island and Goose Island areas but elsewhere they were replaced by Buff-bellied.  They are indeed blessed with good looks and intrigue and they have only made me want to see more of them!  There's a knack in photographing them as well.  Its called patience and getting your background sorted.  


  1. Fantastic shots Steve. Could do with a few lessons on photographing hummers for next year!!!
