Hummingbirds of Southern Arizona: Violet Crowned Hummingbird

The Violet Crowned Hummingbird is only found in Southeast Arizona (in the United States). And fortunately, there is a multi-generational family living in the little town of Patagonia at the Paton House (now run by the Tucson Audubon Society and called The Paton Center for Hummingbirds).

They nest at the Paton House and visit the feeders every 15 to 20 minutes of so. A few hang around all year, but more show up for the summer. It is sometimes found in the Santa Ana,  Huachuca, and Chiricahua Mountains. But The Paton House is almost a sure bet.
