White-eared Hummingbird Nest

While going through some old photos I found this.

When I was working at the Southwestern Research Station in 2000 I heard a report of a White-eared Hummingbird nest up in higher elevations. I had seen a WEHU before, but a nest in AZ. That was too cool to pass up.

Thanks for sharing this terrific image and your notes... and for "going the distance" to follow up on that tip.

Isn't it interesting that even their young have ear marks. It sure makes them easier to identify on their rare USA sightings.

Thanks again for sharing with us...
