The white-necked jacobin (Florisuga mellivora) is a large and attractive hummingbird that ranges from Mexico south to Peru, Bolivia and south Brazil. It is also found on Tobago and in Trinidad, but breeding has not been proved on the latter island.

Ruby throated hummingbirds nest from Nova Scotia to the Gulf Coast and south Florida, west to Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. It winters primarily from south Texas and northeast Mexico south to Costa Rica, Cuba, and Bermuda. It is the most common hummingbird that breeds in the eastern half of North America.
