California Hummingbirds

Mother hummingbird still feeding the fledling a week after they had left the nest.

This is a female Anna's Hummingbird.

This a Black-chinned.

This is an Allen's Hummingbird. We only see a couple of these each summer. They are often confused with the Rufous Hummingbird. The Allen's has green on its upper back,which is rarely seen on a Rufous.

All these hummingbirds were photographed in our backyard using high speed flash.
