Broad-Billed Hummingbird

(Cynanthus latirostris)

Hatch year male: note the distinct purplish-red feathers; by March these will cover the throat and head.

Note the red base to the decurved bill. This young male also shows some blue feathers in the gorget along with lots of green on the lower throat, breast, and flanks.
