“Broad-tailed Hummingbirds zips from flower to flower, hovering above flowers to drink nectar.
When males are zipping around they make a loud metallic-sounding trill with their wings.
Males also perform aerial displays, flying high into the sky and rapidly diving towards the ground making a shrill metallic trill with their wings.
Broad-tailed Hummingbirds breed in high-elevation meadows, shrubby habitats near pine-oak and evergreen forests, and forest openings within pinyon-juniper, oak woodlands, and evergreen forests in the western United States.”
