First Record of the Green-breasted Mango (Anthracothorax prevostii) for the Eastern United States

Green-breasted Mango (Anthracothorax prevostii) Science Article 1


A large and unusual hummingbird appeared at Lori Turner?s hummingbird feeder in rural northeastern Cabarrus County, North Carolina, on 12 November 2000. Susan Campbell received a call about this bird on 18 November and scheduled a banding visit for the next day. Despite the cold and snowy weather, on 19 November Campbell was able to capture and identify the hummingbird as a Green-breasted Mango (Anthracothorax prevostii), a species normally found in the tropics
