Size of Hummers

davewalzSeptember 13, 2009

I have photographed humming bird in North Carolina, but it seems that the hummers in my back yard are a lot smaller than most. I swear I have dragon flies that are bigger. Why do these birds seem smaller and when do the breed in the Tampa area of Florida?

When do you photograph? If you do so at night or very early morning they could be hummer moths. Hummer moths have no beak.

Dave,
I don't know for sure but I don't know if any hummers actually breed in your area of Florida. Check out the Florida Hummingbird website. Steve has created this site just for Floridians.
