Magnificent Hummingbird

(Eugenes fulgens)

 

The size, metallic and purple gorgette color as well as their distinctive squeak are such that once exposed, one is not prone to mistake for another bird. In North America, this is the only bird of the genus Eugenes. Their wings don’t beat as fast as the smaller hummers so, subsequently, in flight they have a much lower ‘hum’.
