Nesting Habits of the Black-Chinned Hummingbird

In March, the male Black-Chinned Hummingbird begins to establish its territory. The ideal locale contains plenty of nectar-bearing wildflowers.

Black-Chinned Hummingbird

If a wandering male or female Black-Chinned hummingbird enters the area, the ‘owner’ of the real estate initiates a wide ‘U’ shaped flight pattern.

Black-Chinned hummingbird males flee but interested female Black-Chinned hummingbirds stick around, perching on a nearby branch to enjoy the display. If attracted to the Black-Chinned hummingbird male, the female flies away and the male follows.

Nestled in tree branches at least six feet above the ground, the Black-Chinned Hummingbird nest is a deep cup consisting largely of plant down, held together with spider webs and cocoon fibers that allow for expansion of the nest.
