Violet-crowned Hummingbird

This beauty was first found nesting in the USA in 1959, it had never been found nesting there before that. It is considered uncommon, but a regular visitor in the summer in a few places in southeastern Arizona and in the lower southwestern New Mexico. Mostly found in Mexico. A fairly large Hummingbird at 4 1/2 inches. The female builds the nest about the size of a small cup, made of grasses, plant fibers and spider webs. She’ll then camouflage the outside with bits of twigs or lichen.
