Anna's Hummingbird (Calpte anna) is one of the species of hummingbirds found on the West coast of the United States. They weigh just over 4 grams and are considered a medium-sized bird, but the largest on the west coast.
These tiny little adult female birds are gray and green with a small pinkish/redish gorget (throat). The males have a larger pinkish/red gorget that extends to their head.
The male and female Juveniles look like the female, but do not have the color on their gorget (throats).
|Here is a rare shot!|
|Taken at sunset, the lighting makes this pair appear more purple than a gray in color.|
|It was fun watching these two!|
|When they are sitting perched, the tip of their wings meet their tail.|
|Photo isn't perfect, but love that beak!|
