Summary

Often called "jewels in flight" due to their brilliant plumage, the tiny hummingbird is a welcome friend in gardens and on patios everywhere. These fascinating little avians have long captured our imagination with their spectacular beauty and magical ability to hover in midair.

This is the ultimate reference guide to hummingbirds, featuring a comprehensive overview of the birds' biology, evolution, behavior, breeding, and migration patterns. You'll be awestruck by the amazing updated collection of full-color photographs depicting hummingbirds in flight and at rest in the Gallery of Hummingbirds.
