Description

Perched on Lantana; photo by Zachary Larsen. Female bird per ornithologist Kimball Garrett: "Appears to be a Costa's (Calypte costae), though I'm not certain I can rule out Anna's (C. anna) or possibly even Black-chinned (Archilochus alexandri) from the photo since the shapes of the primaries and the relative position of wingtip and tail tip are not visible. Identification of female and immature hummingbirds is very difficult -- one should pay special attention to structural characters and vocalizations as well as plumage color.
