FW: Blue-throated Hummingbird in Flagstaff - EDIT: it's a Rivoli's Hummingbird
I've just seen a photo of a female Blue-throated Hummingbird in Flagstaff in the neighborhood just north of the hospital. The photo was taken a couple days ago and I don't know if the bird is still around. Those in the area may want to keep their eyes out!

There is a previous record of this species in Oak Creek Canyon, but I'm not aware of verified above-the-Rim sightings.

This bird has been identified by experts as a Rivoli's Hummingbird, not a Blue-throated!
