Back to Miller Canyon in the Huachucas. The Magnificent Hummingbird -- aptly named -- is not as rare as the Berylline, White-eared or Blue Throat, but is certainly not common, and rare to the United States except for these southern most Arizona mountains. At 5 1/4 inches it is the largest of our hummers. It is a treat to see, although a little more cautious of people and thus a little harder to photograph.
