Origin of the Name Colibri Facilitation

Why use a Colibri, hummingbird to represent a facilitation and coaching company?

A few years ago, Tim climbed Mt. Rainier, the highest mountain in the state of Washington. After returning to camp (at 10,000 feet) a hummingbird was the first creature to greet his team. A short while later, two more hummingbirds flew close to them. These combined experiences piqued his curiosity, since it was unusual to see hummingbirds at high elevation.

Coincidently, this organization, formerly named Advanced Approach, was in the middle of a rebranding effort which included a name change that would be more representative of the work.
