Hi Tweeters,

Well, it is more of a lime green but much more yellow than the typical
Anna's. Showed up at my backyard pond this morning for a drink but did
not come to the feeder. I thought maybe it was just the way the light
hit the back but got several good views from different angles and it
definitely had a yellow streak down its back. (No, I don't think he was
a chicken).. Sorry for PUNishing you all.

I was wondering if anyone else had seen this coloration before? It was
a very large Anna's but still might just be a color phase of a juvenile.
