AZ - Violet-crowned Hummingbird - 07/26/10
Violet-crowned Hummingbird - Paton's yard, Patagonia, Santa Cruz Co., AZ. July 26th, 2010. This famous yard must surely be the most consistent spot in the US to see this spectacular hummer? We were treated to two or three individuals on this date, this one being 'digi-scoped' using a Canon Powershot A560 through a Swarovski HD spotting scope.
