I found your answer....I think. There is a black hummingbird called Black Chinned Hummingbird. My son gave me a backyard bird book for Christmas and I looked this one up. According to the book, the male's gorget is matte black above and violet below which often makes it appear all black. It has a white breast band below the gorget and a black slightly forked tail. Seems there are pretty common in the Southwest and up into Canada. If you want I could scan the book pages and email them. Hope this helps!
If it's totally black it may have a condition called "melanism" which is the opposite of albinism. Instead of a lack of pigmentation, there is an excess.
Go to google.com and type in black hummingbirds. You will find many sites to open for black chin hummingbirds.
