2020—female Broad-Billed Hummingbird

The female Broad-billed Hummingbirds are not as flashy or jewel-like as their male counterparts but they’re every bit as feisty. Their feathers are not as colorful but their backs and sides have a bronzy green sparkle and their partially orange bill adds a little more color. The females are more “lady-like” at the feeders often leaving to allow an aggressive male to sip nectar. But they held their own with the ever-present honey bees.
