Anna;'s Hummingbird, I think

Recommended Posts

Good Morning,

I recently moved and haven't been out much, but saw this one yesterday in Southern California.  I'm pretty sure it is an Anna's (the red/dark spot not he throat) , but was much larger than the others.  In fact, probably the largest local hummingbird I've ever seen.  But alas, size doesn't matter as the territorial Allan's (or Rufus) continually chased the big one away.  

Conformation or corrections much appreciated.

Looks fine for a Anna’s. They are big Hummingbirds. The opposite is true at my place, the Anna’s are territorial and chase away the Allen’s.
