Adult male. Unmistakable. The pink color of the gorget is unique among Mexican hummingbird. Seen from the side the male hummingbirds transforms as Cinderella at midnight to a more modest creature. Here you see that the remiges do not reach the tip of the tail which separates it from Costa's Hummingbird. The shape of the gorget feathers is also different - less pointed.The most common hummingbird in the area.
