An inhabitant of scrubby woods and border areas, this Rio Grande Valley specialty is being observed further north and east each year. In Texas this bird breeds in coastal oak mottes and the riparian forests of the Rio Grande Valley. A hummingbird that is slightly larger than the usual Ruby-throated or Black-chinned Hummingbird, this bird is dark green overall with a rufous tail and red bill. Sexual dimorphism is minimal.
