One of the Anna's Hummingbird males visiting our feeders has what looks like a complete helmet and gorget, except missing the large iridescent feather on each side at the outermost corners of the gorget. It doesn't have the full Yosemite Sam look as another male here does. Is the missing feathers bird certainly a juvenile? I've not yet gotten a good look at or captured photos of his tail feathers to see whether some have the white tips of a juvenile.
