PATINO-GONZALEZ, Blanca Itzel  and  PINEDA-LOPEZ, Rubén. Record of the Black-chinned hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri) in the State of Queretaro, Mexico. Huitzil [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.2, e509.  Epub Mar 27, 2019. ISSN 1870-7459.

We report the first records of the Black-chinned hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri) for the State of Queretaro, Mexico. These records correspond to three sites, The Parque Nacional El Cimatario, The Parque Nacional Cerro de las Campanas and a remnant of vegetation inside the city; where we observed the species during its migratory season, from 2014 and until 2017. The Black-chinned Hummingbird visited mistletoe flowers (Psittacanthus calyculatus), morning glory flowers (Ipomoea murucoides) and red justicia flowers (Justicia candicans). This information confirms the presence of the Black-chinned Hummingbird in the State of Queretaro and supports its inclusion in the list of avifauna of Queretaro.

Keywords : avifauna; hummingbirds; distribution; flowers; new record.
