Sunrise hike to cattail pond
55 degrees F and windy at start 77 degrees F and calm at finish
2 male hummingbirds observed dive bombing each other at a bush too fast to photo and too fast to verify neck/gorget color , and then they were gone
It had green shimmering whings with a long beak. It flew arround a bit and then it perched on a branch then flew away for good.
There were several of these Hummingbirds, all of them had this puffy look, made them look "angry". ID help appreciated.
Or Rufous? It did have extensive green on the back so I'm leaning Allen's.
Could be Anna's Hummingbird
Traditionally, the bird order Apodiformes contained three living families: the swifts (Apodidae), the tree swifts (Hemiprocnidae), and the hummingbirds (Trochilidae). In the Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy, this order is raised to a superorder Apodimorphae in which hummingbirds are separated as a new order, Trochiliformes. With nearly 450 species identified to date, they are the most diverse order of birds after the passerines.
