Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Rather drab, “female-plumaged,” medium-size hummingbird of arid scrubby habitats, including gardens and open woodlands. Feeds at all levels and usually wags and fans tail persistently while hovering—a good field character. Both sexes are dull bronzy green above and dingy, pale grayish below. Male has more extensive red on the bill and female has small whitish tail corners. Female Broad-billed Hummingbird similar, but brighter green above with very little range overlap.
