Broad-billed Hummingbird

Broad-billed Hummingbird, Santa Rita Lodge, Madeira Canyon, AZ

Santa Rita Lodge in Madeira Canyon south of Tucson Arizona is a well-known spot for seeing rare mountain hummingbirds in the United States…mostly Mexican and Central American species that reach the far north edge of their ranges in the sky-islands just north of the border. There are not many rarities around this summer for some reason but that does not diminish the attraction of Santa Rita Lodge. This is the Broad-billed Hummingbird, one of the most colorful breeders in North America…and there are lots of them this summer. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent. 1/1000th @ f4 @ ISO 1000.
