A is for Allen’s Hummingbird in the A-Z Birds on Currency Series. Oil on Bank Note, 5x15cm. Allen's hummingbird is common only in the brushy woods, gardens, and meadows of coastal California from Santa Barbara north, and southern coastal Oregon - which is why this beautiful bird has been painted on an American Dollar. Allen's hummingbird (Selasphorus sasin) is a species of hummingbird. It is a small bird, with mature adults reaching only 3 to 3.5 in (76 to 89 mm) in length. The male has a green back and forehead, with rust-colored (rufous) flanks, rump, and tail. The male's throat is an iridescent orange-red. The female and immature Allen's hummingbirds are similarly colored, but lack the iridescent throat patch, instead having a series of speckles on their throats. Females are mostly green, featuring rufous color only on the tail, which also has white tips. Immature Allen's hummingbirds are so similar to the female rufous hummingbird, the two are almost indistinguishable in the field. Both species' breeding seasons and ranges are common factors used to differentiate between the two species in a particular geographical area.We offer two beautiful framing choices on our artwork, of either a 38mm flat white natural wooden grain frame with a white mount backing and glass, or a 38mm black flat natural wooden grain frame, with black mount backing and glass. These modern choices compliment the artwork perfectly and suit most decors. We can also deliver framed prints overseas with the overseas option (postage included).
