Rufous hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) has the longest
migration route in the family of hummingbirds and is found from
Alaska south through British Columbia, down the coast and winters
mainly in Mexico. Their natural habitat is in mountain meadows
and forest edges. During their journey south, they frequent
gardens with hummingbird feeders. Male hummingbirds are known
to be territorial, but with this species, both the male and
female defend their territory.
