Buff-Bellied Hummingbird

 

The Buff-Bellied Hummingbird is the least studied of hummingbirds indigenous to the United States.

 

For unknown reasons, the Buff-bellied Hummingbird usually flies to the northeast from its breeding areas in the southern part of Texas. This movement is unique among North American hummingbirds.

The Buff-Bellied Hummingbird builds its nest with soft plant down, fine bark fibers, leaves, and moss, covering the outside with lichen. After the nest is completed, the Buff-Bellied hummingbird will adhere it to a branch using spider silk.
