Rivoli's hummingbird        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Rivoli's hummingbirds (initially Rivoli's hummingbird, and then magnificent hummingbird, and now reverting to the original name), are found in the US only in mountain forests in southeastern Arizona and southwest New Mexico.   These birds (males and females) were at feeders in Madera Canyon and Paradise, Arizona.   As with most hummingbirds, the gorget color varies considerably depending on the ambient light angle and quality (sunshine, overcast, etc.).   More pictures of this species are here.
