This is a male Broad-billed hummingbird. Photo taken near Tuscon, AZ. A strikingly colorful bird, the Broad-billed Hummingbird reaches the northern limit of its range in southeastern Arizona. Broad-billed Hummingbirds that nest in Arizona are migratory; populations in Mexico are resident year-round in their breeding range.

Taken with high-speed flash units.

  • Thank you Joe. This was my first attempt at high speed flash. The Broad-billed was my favorite among the species in AZ. I love all of the colors.
