6/24 to 6/26/22 Ash Canyon preserve, Ramsey Canyon, and Miller Canyon Beatty’s Guesthouse, AZ: A male Lucifer Hummingbird in all his glory showed up at Ash C., but would only be photographed at the feeder. He (or they) zipped off towards the mountains after a feed. At Ramsey (VCHU nest) and Miller Canyons (White-eared Hummingbird at feeder), Violet-crowned Hummingbirds were active. Then we were told of a Northern Pygmy-Owl at Ramsey and it was awesome to see the little fellow peeking out over the trail. Also: Elegant Trogan and Hutton’s Vireo .
