AZ - White-eared Hummingbird - 07/28/10
White-eared Hummingbird - male, Beatty's Guest Ranch, Miller Canyon, Cochise Co., AZ. July 28th, 2010. With thoughts turning towards a forthcoming Arizona trip in late July, I came across these images of a smart male White-eared Hummingbird in my folder from last year's Birdfinders tour. I guess time just ran out on me to post them, but better late than never! The carefully placed feeders on Tom Beatty's property in beautiful Miller Canyon provide a unique opportunity to see some incredibly rare hummingbirds - this White-eared Hummingbird is an ABA Code 3 species and was 'digi-scoped' using a Canon Powershot A560 through a Swarovski HD spotting scope.
