The female Rivoli’s or Magnificent Hummingbird is the subtle partner of a glistening turquoise and violet gem. She is found at high elevations, usually above 7,000 feet. Like all hummingbirds, the female is fully in charge of incubating her eggs and feeding her young. During breeding season, she seeks extra protein from insects.
