Hummingbird Species

Of these 23, seven are rare vagrants, occurring anywhere from once ever to once annually in the United States. These are Green Violet-ear, Green-breasted Mango, Xantus’s Hummingbird, Cinnamon Hummingbird, Plain-capped Starthroat, Bahama Woodstar and Bumblebee Hummingbird.

Buff-bellied Hummingbird can only be found in southern Texas, whilst Broad-billed, White-eared, Berylline, Violet-crowned, Blue-throated, Magnificent and Lucifer make their homes chiefly in southeast Arizona.

The remaining eight species are the most widespread, Ruby-throated in the east and Black-chinned, Anna’s, Costa’s, Calliope, Broad-tailed, Rufous and Allen’s in the west.
