John James Audubon painted this lovely hummingbird with a depiction of both males and females of the species, including a nest, on a beautiful hibiscus.
His good friend, Thomas Nuttall, had encountered this species while travelling in the Western U.S. between the Rocky Mountains and California.
It is now called Anna’s Hummingbird. It is one of the most common hummingbirds on the West coast of the United States and Northern Baja California. It can also be found in Arizona. It primarily feeds on nectar, but also eats small insects.
