Anna's hummingbird

Calypte anna

Description:

The Anna's hummingbird lives year round on the pacific coastal strip from southern california to British columbia, supposedly having followed the planting of eucalyptus trees as windbreaks

Habitat:

clearing at forest edge

Notes:

during the winter I generally have 4 males all of whom look slightly different - this one may well be a costa's hybrid with his chunky body, smaller size and trailing gorget that sometimes flashes magenta to purple
