No Baby Hummingbirds at Feeders

Whenever a hummingbird leaves the nest they are fully grown and able to fly.  You will never see a "baby" hummingbird at your feeder, because a baby hummingbird is incapable of flight.  If you should ever witness what appears to be an unusually small hummingbird visiting a flower or feeder then you have likely seen a Hummingbird Moth.  These are quite commonly mistaken for hummingbirds, so you are not alone if you yourself have ever before made the same mistake.
