FEATURED in Hummingbirds of the World 3-10-10


Taken at Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum, Tucson,AZ 2010 with a Canon Powershot SX10IS

Broad-billed hummingbird reaches the northern limit of its breeding range in riparian canyons and foothills of southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico; it is relatively common up to about 5,000’ (1,500m) in varied habitats, from mesquite lowlands through higher-elevations stands of oaks, sycamores, and cottonwoods. Breeding birds are observed mostly from March to September; a few winter in the U.S.

VOICE Call a rattling tsi-tit, similar to Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    great shot on this one. Out there you have many varieties of hummingbirds. I have one the ruby throated.

  • We have 15 known species, though some will say 21. Depends on who you talk to I guess. I have seen many in the wild, but am quite thankful for this museum and the up close in personal nature of it all.
