Great name, huh? At 4.5 to 5.25 inches in size, the Magnificent Hummingbird is one of the largest found in the US. Their overall dark appearance with flashes of brilliant color adds to their impressive appearance. The male has a dark emerald green back, an iridescent purple crown, bright turquise-green throat, and a black belly. He has a white spot behind his eyes. The female has a green back, grayish underside and a white eye streak.
