Berylline hummingbird        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Berylline hummingbirds are a Mexican species (named for the brilliant green color of adult males) that occasionally reaches southeastern Arizona and southwest New Mexico.   These -- a molting female or juvenile and an adult male -- were attending feeders at the Santa Rita and Madera Kubo Lodges in Madera Canyon, Arizona.   The glittering green throat (in males) and rusty 'shoulders' and wing feathers are good field marks.
