Female Magnificent Hummingbird Alights in West Texas
Female Magnificent Hummingbirds aren't as flashy as their male counterparts, but they are beautiful in their own right. When testing your ID skills, look for an emerald green sheen above, a conspicuous white spot streaking behind the eye, and mottled green-gray underparts exhibiting an almost scaled appearance on the flanks. Watch here as one bounces from the left to the right of the feeder on the West Texas Hummingbird cam.
