I braved the afternoon heat and traveled to Sierra Vista to Tom Beatty's at the end of Miller Canyon Road in the Huachuca Mountains, Arizona. I spent a humid and sultry hour from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM at the CAS sight. At the parking lot at the end of Miller Canyon Road my car said it was 98 F. Arriving under partly cloudy skies, I was chased out at the end of the hours by a thunderstorm that featured a lot of lightning.
The WHITE-EARED HUMMINGBIRD male came in about every 10 minutes, gracing feeder #7 exclusively. A VIOLET-CROWNED HUMMINGBIRD had control of feeder #3. Other birds included RIVOLI'S HUMMINGBIRD, BLACK-CHINNED HUMMINGBIRD, BROAD-TAILED HUMMINGBIRD and BROAD-BILLED HUMMINGBIRD.
