Size of Hummers

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?

RE: Size of Hummers

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

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.
