Before 2017 . . . if you visited a small corner of Arizona . . . you might be lucky enough to see the large and beautiful Magnificent Hummingbird.
But then the powers to be split the species into the Rivoli’s Hummingbird and the Talamanca hummingbird (found in Costa Rica and Panama). I think this is a real shame as this hummer is truly Magnificent!!!!
Today’s birding was to Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge (a flop for birds) and Madera Canyon (a huge successful).
