One of the benefits of living here in the Sonoran Desert is the number and variety of hummingbirds that are residents and migrants. This Rufous Hummingbird is a migrant that passes through Tucson on it's way southward. Information on the Rufous can be found here: www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Rufous_Hummingbird/id
The Broad-Billed Hummingbird is the most colorful of the bunch. Information on the Broad-billed Hummingbird can be found at: www.allaboutbirds.org/.../Broad-billed_Hummingbird/lifehistory
