2020—Violet-Crowned Hummingbird

In a week I’ll be heading back to Madera Canyon, Arizona to photograph hummingbirds so I’ve been reviewing the photographs I took there last year. We spent a day at The Nature Conservancy’s Patagonia Sonoita Preserve last year and most of the 1000 plus photographs I took that day were of this very cooperative Violet-crowned Hummingbird. For most of the day he was perched on one of the several decorative rusty iron perches where he seemed to be quite comfortable. This is one of the very few (fewer than a dozen) shots I took of him on a natural perch. Sadly, this year the Nature Conservancy’s Patagonia Sonoita Preserve is closed until further notice, another casualty of the pandemic. Hopefully I’ll see some Violet-crowned Hummers in Madera Canyon.

  1. Should be an easy drive to AZ so you don’t have to go “mingle” with the Covid Masses. Hope you have a wonderful time!
