Hi Pen-Birders,
For a while, I have been observing an alternate plumage (melanin-diluted) male Anna's Hummingbird at my backyard feeders in Miramar, Half Moon Bay.
He is "sepia"-toned with a lavender-blue gorget. I finally captured some decent video of him to share.


I've posted the videos in Flickr:

There are some photos of him in this album:

Thank you to Alvaro Aramillo and Sherri Williamson for helping me with the identification.
