The broad-tailed hummingbird (Selasphorus platycercus) is a medium-sized hummingbird, nearly 10 cm in length. The range of the broad-tailed hummingbird extends across mountain forests and meadows throughout the Western United States. Male and female both have iridescent green backs and crowns and a white breast. The male has a gorget (throat patch) that shines with a brilliant pink-red iridescence and a broad, predominantly black tail accented with varying amounts of green, rufous, and occasionally white. The female is much duller with pale rust-colored sides and outer tail feathers banded in rufous, green, black, and white. In flight the male's wings produce a distinct trilling sound diagnostic for this species.
