- Here's the first report on the San Juan Capistrano orange-billed
hummer by Kaaren Perry.
...... It was a very interesting bird but general conclusion was that
it is an albinistic Anna's. Todd is going to check with Steve Howell
about the bare parts coloration and will forward any info received to
Bill: basal 2/3, fleshy orange. tip 1/3 black.
Underparts: grayish-green flanks and belly. Small patch of orange on
throat viewed by some.
Rather irregular white collar and many white flecks on back.
Size and structure that of Anna's
No vocalizations heard.
Observers: Kaaren, Lucy Lee, Maya, Todd and Pam McGrath
