According to the National Geographic Field Guide, Allen's and Anna's hummingbirds are commonly found year-round in Southern California. There is also a small pocket along the coast where you can find Rufous hummingbirds all year, though many are migratory. Other migratory species found in our area include the Black-chinned, Costa's and Calliope.
