Anna’s, Rivoli’s hummingbirds in Texas, USA


This video from Texas in the USA says about itself:

What’s In A Name: Anna’s and Rivoli’s Hummingbirds – Sept. 12, 2019

Did you know the names of the Anna’s and Rivoli’s Hummingbird are connected? When these species were described in 1829 by French naturalist René Primevère Lesson, he named these dazzling hummers in honor of the Duke of Rivoli and his duchess, Anna de Belle Masséna. Watch a flashy male Anna’s alight on the back right feeder port before a male Rivoli’s steals the spotlight on the back left of the feeder.
