Sweet Little Bird

I found this cutie just sitting in the garden enjoying the brisk dusk air.

There is just something irresistable about a pudgy little bird!

Turns out this little guy is a Costa’s Hummingbird.  I’d never seen one before but his amazing purple markings made him easy to track down!  He gets his name from a 19th century French nobleman with the grand name, Louis Marie Pantaleon Costa, Marquis de Beauregard.   Who knew?!
