    Question Hummingbird

    I live in PA and last summer I had a solid yellow hummingbird at my feeder, I would like to know what the correct name is for this bird. It is a bright yellow and very pretty, I am hoping it will come back this year.

    The black humming bird has come back we saw it today. I think it was looking for the feeder as it went to the spot that I had it last summer.

    Thank You

    Hi, I'm afraid I have no idea. There is no solid yellow hummingbird. I guess the first option to rule out is a hummingbird moth that often get mistaken for weird colored hummingbirds:

    Any chance of a photo even if it's poor?
