Hummingbirds of Southern Arizona: Magnificent Hummingbird

The Magnificent Hummingbird breeds in Southwestern Texas, Southwestern New Mexico, and Southeastern Arizona. It winters in Southern Mexico and Central America. The most reliable place in the US for this very large (5 1/4 inch) hummer is Beatty's Orchard in Miller Canyon, Huachuca Mountains, Arizona. It can be found daily from June through September. The feeders in Ramsey Canyon and Ash Canyon often get the Magnificent as well. And, occasionally it will also show up in Madera Canyon in the Santa Rita Mountains and Portal in the Chiricahua Mountains.
