    Lucifer Hummingbird Identification

    The Four Keys to ID

    • Size & Shape

      The Lucifer Hummingbird's most distinctive features are its curved bill and narrow, forked tail. The large head and heavy, downcurved bill seemingly overbalance this bird's small, tapered body. The tail is very long and narrow, extending well beyond the wingtips.
