This species breeds in southeastern Arizona, southwestern New Mexico, and throughout much of Mexico. Spends winters south of the U.S.-Mexico border. Strays have been recorded from southern California east to Louisiana. Its referred habitats include canyons, foothills, and streambeds. At night, when they are unable to feed, they lower their body temperature and slow their metabolism, thus decreasing their need for food. The intestine of a Broad-billed Hummingbird is hair thin and about two inches in length. These birds can consume up to 1.7 times their weight in nectar each day. A group of hummingbirds has many collective nouns, including a “bouquet”, “glittering”, “hover”, “shimmer”, and “tune” of hummingbirds.
