Allen’s hummingbird photographed with Bird Photo Booth bird feeder.
Look out lady hummingbirds, this strikingly handsome adult male Allen’s hummingbird is out on the prowl. Easily mistaken for the Rufous Hummingbird, the male Allen’s have a green back and forehead, with rust-colored rufous flanks, rump, and tail.
Hot-tempered male Allen’s hummingbirds are really fun to watch, and can often be seen guarding the feeder. They also make time to show off, with a little acrobatic back and forth courtship dance to impress the females. We’re impressed with their dance moves, are you?
