Abstract

A hummingbird specimen collected by W. W. Brown in 1917 in the Huachuca Mountains, southeastern Arizona, is a hybrid of Hylocharis leucotis (white-eared hummingbird) × Selasphorus platycercus (broad-tailed hummingbird). Brown's specimen, which exhibits a blended mosaic of plumage characters of the presumed parental species, represents the first known instance of hybridization between species currently placed in Hylocharis and Selasphorus.
