- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S61158671
- Comments: "(Rare) Continuing bird, logging as a Costa's though
acknowledging the possibility that it is a hybrid following previous
observations (see: https://ebird.org/checklist/S60971902)

Observed the hummer a couple times, but it mostly stayed hidden in a leafy
shrub, once perched conspicuously on the mostly leafless linden. Very vocal
in calls (made recording) that did sound a lot like junco tiks, but in a
more incessant, staccato fashion like hummingbird calls generally, and
unlike the patterned bursts of juncos (which were also present and making
their calls for easy comparison).

Smaller than Anna's, which it called at and chased very aggressively.
Purple gorget seen well in good light, extended like a mustache down
throat. Didn't get to study wingtips or other plummage details closely but
good photos in other checklists.

Never heard it sing so no Anna's-like song heard."
