I got to see my hummingbird babes for a short moment and was shocked at how they had grown !
Costa’s hummingbird has a long straight bill, a bright green back and crown, white underparts, a dark tail, and greenish flanks. The male has a distinctive, iridescent purple crown and gorget (like a purple mask extending down the neck). The female has a white chin and underside, and like many female hummingbirds, its dark tail has white tips on its outer tail feathers. This was taken with a Nikon D90 Nikon 70-300mm VR in Tucson , Arizona
