The Lucifer Hummingbird, a medium-sized member of the hummingbird family, has a distinctly decurved bill. Their numbers in any area correspond directly to rainfall and flowering times of desert plants.
Due to its high metabolism, the Lucifer Hummingbird must eat constantly, feasting on nectar and insects, giving it energy for flapping its wings at incredible speeds.

Nesting Habits of Lucifer Hummingbirds
Lucifer hummingbirds generally breed late in the year during dry seasons, often producing two broods of young Lucifer hummingbirds during rainy years.
To begin the courtship, male Lucifer hummingbirds perch atop plants and launch into a dramatic aerial display to court female Lucifer hummingbirds.
Female Lucifer hummingbirds incubate their eggs for 15 days, and the little fledgling Lucifer hummingbirds leave the nest after 19-23 days to face the world.
