rivoli's/anna's hybrid
here is a note i got from red rock state park by way of jeff tanner

A park visitor, Logan Hatfield, snapped some pictures of a rare hummingbird hybrid on Saturday, August 19th.  Logan sent the photo to Sheri Williamson (author of A Field Guide to Hummingbirds of North America in the Peterson Field Guide Series) and she indicated that the bird captured in the photo is a hybrid between the Ana's and Rivoli's (formerly known as Magnificent) species of hummingbirds.  According to Williamson this is the first documentation of a pairing between these two species of hummingbirds.

We'll be posting the pictures of this bird on our facebook page sometime today but in case some of you don't use facebook I've attached the two best photos.
   Heidi Erickson, Park Manager

i hope i have added the pictures ok.
