2020—Still Mr. Wonderful

The first time I visited Madera Canyon several years ago, I saw my first Magnificent Hummingbird. He was stunningly gorgeous and more than twice the size of the other hummers. We started calling him Mr. Wonderful whenever he appeared at the feeders or was perched nearby. A few years ago, the Magnificent Hummingbird was renamed the Rivoli’s Hummingbird when it was determined there were really two species. The Rivoli’s lives from Nicaragua north to southern Arizona. In my mind, he’s still Mr. Wonderful.
