Unusual context, but the back shot makes the wings look way long. The
dull/cool gray auricular patch fully outlined in white. I want to call it a
Costa's. I saw a similar bird at 13th and Fall in Newport on Nov 11. Bet
it's still there. Someone put a feeder up in the vacant lot. There are
seemingly 1000s of Anna"s Hummingbirds on the Oregon coast in winter.
Sifting through them reminds me of looking for cowbird in a winter
blackbird flock.
