I love this beauty, although it has me very confused. I believe it most likely is a male Broadbilled hummingbird but I have been thrown off several times. The colors don’t make sense to me, but I’m happy it’s been gracing me with its presence for several weeks. A jewel of the desert 🏜😊 #hummingbirds #birds #audobonsociety #naturelovers #birdlovers #wildplanet #natureconservation #planetbirds #nuts _about_birds #arizonahighways #birdshots #capturearizona #backyardbirding

Giant hummingbird (𝘗𝘢𝘵𝘢𝘨𝘰𝘯𝘢 𝘨𝘪𝘨𝘢𝘴) is the only member of its genus and as the name suggests the largest hummingbird. I compared it to the size of a starling to my photographer friends and to my surprise it’s exactly the same description Wikipedia gives. That or a northern cardinal. I remember when @percy.ave .birdingguide pointed one out to me I kept trying to look past this dove colored bird to look for it before I realized that it was in fact the hummingbird. Generally very small, even a bird this size is strikingly larger. The wings flap a bit slower but as you can see it looks and flys just like a hummingbird. I really love the way this shot turned out, kind of reminds me of an angel. .
