Comments:
Spent nearly our entire time there watching the hummingbird feeders for the Violet-crowned Hummingbird. It had appeared several times before we arrived, but then did not reappear until 12:40. It then visited the feeders at 12:50, 13:00, and 13:10 before flying off to the north. Weather was clear and hot (90F).

Continuing bird visiting the feeders very sporadically. Made several brief visits before we arrived at 0630 and then came in at 1240, 1250, 1300, and 1310. After the visit at 1310 it appeared to fly further away and was assumed to be gone for an extended period. Plain and long-bodied hummingbird with brownish upperparts and bright white underparts. Pink bill with black tip and dark crown with some purplish feathers at the rear of the crown.
