They are lovely little guys, aren't they?

I spend half the year in MA and half in TX and never saw a black-chin till I got to TX. I did feed a batch of rubies here (TX) for about 10 days and sent the males on their way. Glad to see they arrived safely as I will be there soon!
I had dozens of them for the fall migration south (to the lower elevations they prefer) and at least one female that stayed around until February, but I never saw any on the return trip.
