Broad-tailed Hummingbird--Desert View
Hummingbirds seem to be arriving earlier every year on the South Rim. No sooner than I'd typed my reply to Kip about it being early yet for migrants, I heard the trill of a male Broad-tailed Hummingbird in the yard here at Desert View. He's made a couple visits in the last half hour.

This year's male Broad-tailed Hummingbird on 4 March 2016 is my earliest hummingbird of any species on the South Rim.

I hang my feeders around the 1st of March--I may need to move that into February at this rate.

Female Broad-tailed Hummingbird arrived at Desert View today, 18 March 2016.

The male survived the snowstorm a week or so ago, but seems to have moved on.
