The Hummingbird brings happiness and joy when they return in the spring after a long winter. She is a feminine symbol representing beauty, intelligence, peace and love. In Pacific Northwest Coast First Nations art, the Hummingbird is portrayed with a long thin beak, a large round head and large outspread wings, and is often depicted surrounded by fauna, with a beak embedded in a flower. Hummingbirds are always portrayed in a profile view.
