Allen's Hummingbird (male), Selasphorus sasin
Allen's Hummingbird (male) in the backyard. They're a little shy compared to the Anna's. I've been trying to get a decent picture for a while but they typically move before I can auto-focus the lens.. They pass through San Diego on their migration down to and back up from Mexico. This Summer, I have a little family of them in the back yard. There is also a year round colony of them in the Channel Islands, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. It could be, with all the feeders in San Diego, that some of them decided to stay here as well.
