Costa’s Hummingbird

Kind of a large-headed, potbellied, small hummingbird, but cute as a button! The male has a beautiful iridescent purple gorget and crown. I found this one in California just buzzing around trying to be noticed. They can be found in the western US and down through Mexico. Their diet consists of nectar from flowers, but they favor living in the desert areas and if their are flowers in the area year round they sometimes will not migrate south at all.
