This tutorial will instruct you how to draw a hummingbird. We will pay attention to the shapes of each section and types of outlines drawn so that the artwork looks correct.
Time Needed: 20 minutes
Outline The Head
Using your pencil, draw a square with rounded corners in the upper middle of your paper. Then the bottom of the square should be a zigzag line.
Add Details In The Head; Draw The Eyes And Beak
First, draw a diagonal line in the middle of the head. Then draw the tiny eyes in the middle. The hummingbird has a long and thin beak, like in the demonstration.
Draw The Wings
We are drawing this bird in a flying position, so the wings are spread open. Create your drawing on the right side just below the head. Then we could add a short connecting line from the wing to the head.
Add The Body And The Tail
Then, add a curved line from the left side of the head down to the lower part of the wing. We can now add the tail like in the sample.
Draw The Feet
Before we color our drawing, draw the tiny feet on the left side of the body.

This hummingbird has a dark red neck, with a combination of greens and grays.

Amazing Tiny Birds!
Hummingbirds are the smallest birds that are found in the United States. They are found in various parts of the country, but they are present in huge numbers in the Pacific Northwest and the Northwest region. They are colorful and very entertaining and can be a delight to watch.
Most people are attracted to hummingbirds because of their beauty and their ability to fly backwards. These elusive creatures are mesmerizing to watch. What you may not realize is that their ability to hover, beat their wings up to 80 times per second has its limitations. This means that they need food that is not too far away.
Hummingbirds are well-known for their ability to fly very fast, flap their wings faster than any other bird, and hover in place — all while feeding themselves.
They are also well-known for being iridescent in color. But did you know that hummingbirds are also excellent architects? It’s true! Hummingbirds are very good at building nests in which they can lay their eggs.
Hummingbird nests are tiny, about the size of a golf ball, and they are typically made in small, protected areas, such as in a tree fork or inside a plant. Hummingbird nests are made out of tiny pieces of plants, spider silk, animal hair, and other fibers.
These materials are all bound together with spider silk, which is woven together in a way that is strong enough to hold the eggs. The outside of the nest has a soft, fluffy appearance, so it is often camouflaged with lichens, moss, or other things that will help it blend in.
