This summer, there are hummingbird nests everywhere - and I also have baby Painted Redstarts in a nest in a wreath on my frame shop door. All these feathered babies have inspired me to paint a young black-chinned hummingbird.
I have fibbed about the chin color on this little guy. A fledging wouldn't have the neck color but rather a white chin with some speckles. The dark chin worked better against the light background so I lied. It is called artistic license!
