A hummingbird is a small, colorful bird in the Trochilidae family. They are known for their small size, which varies between 3 and 5 cm in length, and for their fast and showy flight. They usually have brightly colored plumage, such as red, blue, green, and yellow. Hummingbirds are efficient pollinators, since their way of feeding is through flower nectar. They are native to the Americas and especially common in South America. They are migratory and seasonal species in some regions.
