The Field Guide to the Western Birds  (Roger Tory Peterson) and A Guide to 
Field Identification Birds of North America (Robbins et al) list the bird as 
Rivoli's Hummingbird
the scientific name being Eugenes fulgens.  Sibley's Guide to Birds calls it 
Magnificent Hummingbird  --  same generic name.  It might be worth considering 
the fact that the location of the net etc. was not definitely in California, it 
could well have been photographed in another State i.e. Arizona. Cheers Robbie
