A small, long-tailed hummingbird of wooded and scrubby habitats including gardens; most often found feeding on flowers or at hummingbird feeders. Note the male’s iridescent purple throat and forehead and its long, forked tail. On females, note the orange sides and tail edges. The male Cuban Emerald is all green while the female is dingy white below unlike the Bahama Woodstar. The male Ruby-throated Hummingbird lacks the Bahama Woodstar’s long tail and has a red (not purple) throat, while female Ruby-throated has little, if any, orange below and no orange on the tail. Calls include a sharp, metallic “tit” or “tit-it”; often given in series, sometimes quite rapidly. Males also make a metallic sound with their tail during display flights.
