About the Bird Art:
The image is printed on Epson Premium Matte Paper with UltraChrome Ink; the color should last quite a long time. The print is then mounted on a cradled wood block and coated with a UV resistant protectant to prevent fading. Each block is signed on the back. Ready to hang from a sawtooth hanger attached to the back. Watermarks will not appear on print. Color may vary (based on your monitor settings).

This listing is for a limited edition, fine art print of my original painting of a Broad-billed Hummingbird called, “I’d go the whole wide world just to find her.”
This portrait is of a broad-billed hummingbird that a friend was lucky enough to snap a photo of. These little guys mostly live in Arizona, Mexico, and sometimes Southern California, so it was kind of a freak occurrence that one ended up in our neck of the woods. But man, look at all those gorgeous colors!
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for November 2018.
About the Broad-billed Hummingbird
A strikingly colorful bird, the Broad-billed Hummingbird reaches the northern limit of its range in southeastern Arizona. Broad-billed Hummingbirds that nest in Arizona are migratory; populations in Mexico are resident year-round in their breeding range.
- Like other hummingbirds, the Broad-billed Hummingbird probably consumes about 1.6 to 1.7 times its body weight in nectar each day.
- The male Broad-billed Hummingbird performs a courtship display, starting by hovering about a foot from the female and then flying in repeated arcs, like a pendulum.
- Like other hummingbirds, the Broad-billed Hummingbird is incapable of walking or hopping.
- The oldest recorded Broad-billed Hummingbird was a male, and was at least 9 years, 1 month old when it was recaptured and rereleased during banding operations in Arizona.
