With its iridescent violet crown and flared violet gorget, the male Costa’s is a stunning sight. While some desert species nest during the nourishing monsoon rains of July, the Costa’s nest in the cooler month’s of February and March, provided lowers and insects are plentiful; it and the related Anna’s may be the only hummingbirds seen in the deserts at this season.

VOICE Call is a rich ringing, sparrowlike tsit
