Rufous hummingbirds nests in semiopen habitats where woodlands open onto verdant, flower rich meadows. They defend their territory against other hummingbirds with inexhaustible energy, driving them out in long chase flights.
Females almost identical to Allen’s; safely distinguished by measurements of outer tail feathers (broader in Rufous)
