ENV: Magnificent Hummingbird

One of the most astounding bird records ever for Kerr County occurred next door last summer -- as big as Kerr records of Magnificent Frigatebird and Northern Jacana. Charles and Pat Howeel got pictures of a Magnificent Hummingbird at their neighbor's house. This record didn;t get much play because it was around only briefly, and because it's not a terribly tough bird to find -- only it's normally at 5,000 feet in the Trans-Pecos Mountains. Anyway, here's one of Charlie's pics of this unlikely visitor that i just saw recently for the first time
