Hi All,

I was able to add some brief handheld phonescoped video to my eBird checklist
that some might enjoy! Instructions for downloading and playing the raw Apple
MOV video files are in the checklist, and the video clips are available on
Flickr as well.

Also, a brief amazing article from David Sibley concerning the basics of
iridescence in hummingbirds:

Thanks so much to Ann and her family for so graciously sharing such an
absolute gem of a North Carolina hummingbird with everyone!

Good Birding All!
