Hummingbird Moths have been spotted in large numbers recently in the St. James area.
Hummingbird Moths, unlike other types of moths, can be spotted on clear sunny days and are easily mistaken for Hummingbirds because they have a similar flight pattern and coloring. They often live in forests or gardens and feed on nectar of flowers.
Hummingbird Moths can be one to two inches in length with a wingspan about the same size. These moths have a great memory and will often visit the same flowers over and over again.
