Hummingbirds are the world's second largest family of birds with an estimated 338 species. Despite the fact that they are found only in the Americas and islands of the Caribbean, they are a familiar subject around the globe.
Thirty-four (34) species (nearly 10%), are threatened with extinction, according to an analysis by BirdLife International. A list of these species with details is posted at this link: https://www.hummingbirdsociety.org/endangered-hummingbirds-list
