Anna's Hummingbird at feeder

This Anna's Hummingbird entertained me while I was in Bend (Oregon) over the Labor Day weekend. After studying illustrations in several field guides, I am assuming this is an adult female because of the small bit of color on the throat, and a white spot behind the eye. In any case, it's a "chunky" bird, and really seemed to enjoy the sugar water in the feeder. (Remember to click on the photo for an enlarged view.)
