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.

In my defense, spellcheck though that my typing was correct, and who am I to argue..
