Xanthus's Hummingbird

The Southern Baja has a total of 6 recognized endemic species. In the huge arroyo that Jeanne and I spend the holiday break in, just happens to have a nice population of these little beauties. The Xanthus's Hummingbird is only found here on the Baja, and like most Hummingbirds of this region live on the nectar they can find in the local plants and flowers. Below are a few of the photos I was able to get, despite the fact that most of the entire week was a gray cloudy group of days.

Here is a close up profile that clearly shows the white eyebrow stripe
