HUMMINGBIRD

Hummingbirds will only be found living in South America and North America. There have been several species identified as far north as Alaska, and their habitat in the south extends down to the southern tip of Chile.

They definitely have a very diverse habitat in terms of location, but Ecuador is home to more different kinds of Hummingbirds than any other area: there have been 163 different species identified so far that are able to find habitat and thrive there. 

Due to their small size, many people see them as fragile birds that won’t be able to survive in cooler areas. However, they even make their home in desert areas, coastal regions, forests areas, and meadows. They do require areas that have a warmer temperature for breeding to take place. That is why this part of their life cycle takes place during migration.
