The hummingbird next door

This hummingbird flew across the street I was walking along and landed on a branch in a neighbor’s yard this morning.

He looks a little bit tired. Hummingbirds are usually in constant motion. Is he migrating?

Identifying hummingbirds in NH was easy because there’s only one kind there, and only in summer, the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. This may be a Ruby-throated but I didn’t get a good look at his neck. Maybe a Black-chinned?

At least 12 species of hummingbird have been reported in Florida, according to the website Florida Hummingbirds.

Addendum: consensus on the Facebook ABA, Hey What’s This Bird? is that it is a Ruby-throated Hummingbird.
