Santee Bird of the Month: Anna’s Hummingbird

Tuesday, October 1, 2013


Anna’s are among the most common type of hummingbird  found in Southern California. It’s the only one in North America with a crimson-red crown, but only the males have that colorful feature. The one pictured here is a female Anna’s, which is less colorful because it needs to camouflage itself from predators. These birds feed on nectar from flowers and on insects.
