Costa’s Hummingbird

's Hummingbird 2.JPG

The above photo is of a male Costa’s Hummingbird.  You can tell the bird is a male due to the metallic green back, violet purple crown and gorget, very long throat feathers and green breast.  The average weight for the male of this species is 3.05 grams.  Costa’s Hummingbirds don’t migrate very long distances, so they are often among the first birds to arrive each spring.
