Anna’s Hummingbirds are common in yards, parks, residential streets, eucalyptus groves, riverside woods, savannahs, and coastal scrub. They readily come to hummingbird feeders and flowering plants, including cultivated species in gardens.
Different species of hummingbirds are going to be in different parts of the United States. The most common hummingbird in the United States is the ruby-throated hummingbird, and they usually stick to the eastern half of the United States. Black-chinned and Anna’s hummingbirds are going to be found in the western part of the United States, and Rufous hummingbirds stick to the Pacific Northwest.
Males have an iridescent pinkish redhead, throat, and neck that may appear black or reddish-orange depending on the light. With so much bright color, these hummingbirds may appear at first glance to have a full pink hood, though the back of the neck is green. The chest, abdomen, and sides are gray with a green tint. Wings and tail are dark dusky black-brown and there is a pale, broken eye-ring.
Female Anna’s hummingbirds have a green crown, back, and tail, any of which may show some minor iridescence. The chest, throat, and abdomen are pale gray, and the pale gray throat has central dark red spots or splotches. The wings and tail are dark and there are white spots on the outer tail feathers. Females have a white patch over the eye, though the extent of the white can vary.
Juveniles are similar to females and will gradually develop their adult plumage. Males do so starting with scattered pink or reddish spots on their throats and eventually becoming the full hood-like coloration.
The Anna’s hummingbird, which was named after Anna Massena, a 19th century French duchess, easily defeated the northern flicker, varied thrush and spotted towhee in balloting to earn the title of Vancouver’s official city bird in 2017.
Hummingbirds are attracted to long tubular flowers with thin floral nectar (only about 20% total dissolved solids). Further, the flowers most visited by them are usually yellow, orange and especially red in color. Anna’s actively hunts down small flying insects as protein and lipid sources. They aim at the insects with their bills and at the last second open their mouths wide and scoop them up. This fascinating behavior has only been documented in the last few years using specialized high speed cinematography.
