Broad-Tailed Hummingbirds are one of the more active species when it comes to eating insects. They hunt insects whether they are in flight or sitting on foliage and in trees. When they are flying, their wings produce an unusual ‘trilling’ noise, unique to the breed.
Due to their high metabolism, Broad-Tailed Hummingbirds must eat constantly, feasting on nectar and insects.
