Guest Sightings: White-eared Hummingbird at Boot Canyon

Better late than never, perhaps - this post has been backdated. Reposted from Texbirds with permission. Slightly edited to fit blog format.


White-eared Hummingbird, Monday, 7/20/15, at Boot Canyon
Date: Wed, 22 Jul 2015

On Monday I saw a White-eared Hummingbird at Boot Canyon that appears to be the same bird reported by Randy Pinkston.
It took the better part of 3.5 hours for me to get a solid view. When I finally saw the bird, it was perched mid-level in a tree near the picnic table above the spring. That was at ~3.30pm. Menacing skies and the threat of hail sent me on my way shortly thereafter.

Thanks to Randy and Byron for getting the word out,

Many thanks to Teresa Keck of South Texas for her permission to share her post! White-eared Hummingbirds *not* at feeders are quite an exceptional event!
