Anna's or Costa's

Recommended Posts

Straight bill, extensive green on the undersides, spotted throat, looks like an Anna's.

Hello, JoeLeen, no doubt Anna’s. Costas’ bill is slightly curved. Anna’s bill is straight. Anna’s upper parts is a metallic green. Costas’ has a green upper part. I know I’m late but still hope this info. will help. Great picture. I’m sure you had fun hanging out with hummingbirds.

Thanks very much! I have lots more pictures to look through so information to help me differentiate the two on my own is always good. :)

I've been studying the hummers at my neighbors feeder. It gets mobbed by Anna's, Allen's, and Costa's. I've noticed that curved bill of the Costa's, among other things. I agree with Anna's for your bird.
