The Rufous-tailed Hummingbird is a medium-sized hummingbird.  It has a distinctly rufous-colored tail, from which its named is derived, and a bright pink bill.  Like other hummingbirds, it feeds on nectar and small insects. The Rufous-tailed Hummingbird is perhaps the most common species of hummingbird at forest edge and in gardens and cultivated areas from southern Mexico south to northwestern South America.
