I expanded the photo and now see what you are referring to. As we know, the gorget on male Anna’s tend to be fully develop before the rest of the iridescent head feathering.

>> Christopher Hinkle alerted me to the fact that a photo that I posted and listed as a Rufous Hummingbird on May 27th at my feeder in Medford did not appear to be a Rufous Hummingbird - but actually a BROAD-TAILED HUMMINGBIRD. Unfortunately the feeder has been since taken down as the house is being painted, but I'm going to put it back up today in the off chance the hummingbird returns. I see only one record of Broad-tailed Hummingbird in Jackson County, so if there is any dissent about changing the ID of this hummingbird (now listed as hummingbird sp.) now is the opportunity.
