Allen’s Hummingbird

Scientific Name: Selasphorus sasin

Allen’s Hummingbird, a charming resident of Huntington Beach, California, is a small bird known for its iridescent green plumage and fiery orange-red throat patch, or gorget, in males. During the breeding season from late winter to early spring, males perform dazzling aerial displays to attract mates. Females have more subdued green and buff plumage with speckled throats. These tiny birds are a common sight in gardens and parks year-round, but their numbers peak during the breeding season.
