Nesting Broadbill Hummingbird

Nesting female Broadbill Hummingbird, Cynanthus latirostris. This female Broadbill chose an old, dried out bromeliad cup to make her nest in (this last May). The male was hanging out on a nearby branch. These beautiful hummingbirds range from southwest Mexico to Canada but are not common in San Diego.
