The Sparkling Violetear was not seen today. The species has been confirmed
as such by the expert on the violetears who wrote the paper on separation
of the Green and Sparkling Violetear complex for the ABA. As a Sparkling,
there is little likelihood of it being a vagrant or certainly no way of
knowing if it is not an escape from one of the many aviaries this species
is kept. A very quick check has them breeding in the San Diego Zoo. They
could just as easily be kept locally - legally or illegally.
