Where did you take this? I believe it's a Anna's Hummingbird!

I agree, it's a Male Anna's Hummingbird. The shape of the gorget, and the iridescent feathering extending behind the eye, are diagnostic for this species.

There are 976 species on the ABA list. Looks like I've got a lot of birding to do....
