In North America, birdwatchers can hope to spot five species of hummingbirds. These include the Allen’s hummingbird, rufous hummingbird, Anna’s hummingbird, Costa’s hummingbird and the ruby-throated hummingbird. Each of these five species of hummingbirds have specific color differentiations that help make identifying them easier.
1.Anna Hummingbird Pop Up card
Anna’s Hummingbirds are mostly green and gray, without any rufous or orange marks on the body. The male’s head and throat are covered in iridescent reddish-pink feathers that can look dull brown or gray without direct sunlight.
2.Blue Throated Hummingbird 3D Pop-up
The adult male Blue-throated has a green back and crown, dark gray breast, bright blue gorget, and a dark blue tail that has white outer tips. The female Blue-coated also has a green back and crown, gray great, and white tips on the outer tail feathers. Both sexes have thin white stripes above and below their eyes.
3.Ruby Throated Hummingbird 3D Pop-up
The Ruby is a striking green, almost appearing gold in some lighting, with the same green on its back and crown. The underparts are a grayish white. Its name comes from the bright iridescent red throat of the male with its rich green back and crown and grayish white underparts. Another tell-tale sign you’ve spotted a male Ruby is that in the dark their gorget appears darker than it is.
4.Rufous Hummingbird 3D Pop-up
If the light hits it just right, the male Rufous appears to be the color of glowering coals, namely a bright orange backside and belly, a fiery red throat. The female is green with rufous washed (brown) flanks, green patches in the tail and a bit of orange on the throat.
