Broad-tailed Hummingbird #8


Another new bird for me, this one is from Colorado. A Male Broad-tailed Hummingbird I stumbled across at the Denver Botanic Garden. It is very similar to our eastern Ruby-throated Hummingbird. The only major difference is that the Broad-tail has a pink breast plate and the ruby-throat  has a red one.
