Crowned Woodnymph Hummingbird - The Virtual Rainforest by Gerald Urquhart.

Hummingbirds feed on nectar from flowers, but also consume quite a few small, flying insects.
One may also ask, where do hummingbirds live? The almost 340 species of hummingbirds are entirely restricted to the New World, where they can be found from Tierra Del Fuego to southern Alaska and from below sea level deserts to steamy tropical forests at elevations of up to 16,000 feet in the Andes of South America.
Similarly one may ask, what do hummingbirds eat in the Amazon rainforest?
While hummingbirds often drink plant nectar, even sugar-water from feeders, they also eat pollen and tiny insects such as bees, ants, flies and beetles. Some studies have even shown that while the hummingbirds are overwintering in the tropics, they eat more insect matter than plant matter.
What animals live in the rainforest?

Rainforests are populated with insects (like butterflies and beetles), arachnids (like spiders and ticks), worms, reptiles (like snakes and lizards), amphibians (like frogs and toads), birds (like parrots and toucans) and mammals (like sloths and jaguars).
