BROAD-TAILED HUMMINGBIRD

Broad-Tailed Hummingbirds can be found in meadows and woodland habitats in higher elevation areas. They have iridescent colors, created by the structure of their feathers. So, at just the right angle, the observer can see the green on the female and male, and the vibrant magenta on the male throat. The tail feathers have white on the tips. The male display is to fly high in the air, then dive at fast speeds, making the distinct sound from their tail feathers. Read more: HUMMINGBIRDS.  Here is a female on one of my feeders.
