Humming bird id ?


Haven't seen this one before. Anyone have an idea what flavor it is?

Tough call. I suspect that the orange forehead is just a pollen load. It is a young male, regardless. Without some throat color that's as far as I can go.

New species!


You get to name it. I suggest something commemorating Mason!

I've had one with similar coloration in my yard.

One guess: Allen's Hummingbird
See: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Allens_Hummingbird/id

"In early spring, a narrow strip of scrub and chaparral along the Pacific Coast starts buzzing with the sights and sounds of the coppery and green Allen's Hummingbird. Males flash their brilliant reddish orange throat and put on an elaborate show for the females, swinging in pendulous arcs before climbing high into the sky and diving back down with a sharp squeal made by their tails. These early migrants mostly spend the winter in Mexico, but some stay in southern California year-round."




\"Probably the airplanes will bring week-enders from Los Angeles before long, and the beautiful poor bedraggled old town will bloom with a Floridian ugliness.\" (John Steinbeck, 1940, discussing the future of La Paz, BCS, Mexico)

I vote for Rufous Hummingbird, if there was more brown than green.

It is a native Russellus Beeftacous, attracted to the white sour cream and sweet house sauce Russ has.
