The most distinctive feature of this hummingbird is the yellow tip on its beak.
The tip is odd, but other hummer photos had stuff on the ends of their bills. Anyway this was my best idea. Maybe liam will confirm. He is an expert on birds of all kinds. I am still learning. :)
Thank you gatorfellows for the ID and the links. It does match perfectly, even the winter range. Maybe Larry Graziano is right about the yellow is pollen at the end of the beak.
Think it matches a female or immatureHere is the CornellLab reference with the range: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Calli...Here is Bird forum: http://www.birdforum.net/opus/Calliope_H...
Thank you Rieko
Very nice series. I love the background color too.
Thank you Larry, it may be pollen at the end of the beak. Mi wife has been searching in her bird books and she hasn't find a match yet.Thank you gatorfellows.
I poured through a bunch of fotos and maybe the yellow is pollen at the end of the beak.
Love the bit of color at the tip of its bill. :)
