rufous hummingbird

Classification

 Kingdom: Animalia
 Phylum: Chordata
 Class: Aves
 Order: Apodiformes
 Order: Trochilidae

Green Violet-eared HummingbirdThere are over 300 species in this family. Hummingbirds are the smallest of all the birds and they are found in North America, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America. They are 2.5-4.5 inches in length and have long, thin bills and a long tongue that they use to eat nectar. Hummingbirds have very tiny feet and never walk on the ground!

Hummingbirds are found in a wide variety of habitats and regions. While most hummingbirds are found in warm areas, some species are found in Alaska and Canada! They are usually found in areas with lots of nectar producing flowers. They hover over flowers as they gather nectar with their wings beating as fast a 78 times per second!

The males are usually brightly colored and in some species the male has long tail feathers and a crest on his head. Females are usually duller in color than the males.

Male hummingbirds mate with more than one female. Female hummingbirds care for and raise hummingbird chicks on their own. Hummingbirds are solitary and only interact with each other during mating and while raising young.
