How to use my free coloring pages & supplies needed list:
*Keep in mind that while these coloring sheets are free, they are for personal use only. Any additional use will need written permission, from me, obtained via email. Thanks.*
**The example images for this little printing tutorial are from my free spring flowers coloring pages, you can get those here if you so desire.**
How to get best results when printing hummingbird outlines
- Standard 8.5"x11" Printing Paper (or quality cardstock)
- Black Ink/Toner
- Computer/ Phone/ Or Tablet To Download To
- Colored Pencils
- Pencil Sharpener
- Eraser (optional)
- Scroll through the available coloring sheet options and determine which picture/pictures you would like to color (the example photo, with the websites watermark, shows you what the whole PDF will look like).
- Scroll just below the desired example photo, to the PDF version (the PDF version does not have the websites watermark on it), and either select "print" in the top right hand corner, or you can select "download" (also in the top right hand corner).
- As you go to print it, select the highest quailty option, or the highest DPI setting (DPI refers to the number of printed dots that are within one inch of the image being printed...basically the higher the number, the better the quality of the print). Now select "print".
- After printing out your coloring pictures, allow the ink to set (dry out) for several minutes. This step will help prevent any smudging.
- Now wash your hands and dry them thoroughly. Find a clean, nice flat/hard surface to lay the paper on, and color your prints in whatever way you fancy. Then enjoy them for years to come.
Ideas on what to do with these pictures:
You could print the coloring pages out and bind them and, paired with some nice colored pencils or an art set, it could be a fun little gift for any coloring enthusiast's special day.
You could also buy some simple frames, have these pictures printed out on a quality card stock at a local printing company, color them as beautifully as you can, and they could easily be added to your home decor.
These free coloring pictures can also be used as embroidery patterns using transfer sheets.
They could be used as a pattern for a fine-line tattoo.
Then of course, you can just plain print them out and color them as many times as you want to too.
*Please note that this website uses an image optimizer on the example photo's (which makes them load faster but also reduces quality), which is why you will get the best result by making sure you are downloading and using the PDF file directly. The example photo is just there so that you get an idea of what the entire picture looks like as it is hard to scroll through a PDF, on some devices, and see the whole thing within one screenshot.*
**Print quality instructions are for when using a desktop computer and an HP printer, it should be fairly similar should you use a different device**.
***Please make sure to select "fit to page" option when printing so that you ensure that entire image makes it on your printed page.

Hummingbird FAQ’s/Learn about them
There are several great websites where you can learn about hummingbirds, depending on what specifically you are interested in. Here are three websites that I recommend:
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s “All About Birds” website https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/search/?q=hummingbird (you may need to type in the word hummingbird in the search bar) is an excellent resource for learning about hummingbirds. It provides detailed information about different species of hummingbirds, their behavior, habitats, and conservation status. The website also includes high-quality photos, videos, and audio recordings of hummingbirds in their natural habitat.
The Hummingbird Society https://www.hummingbirdsociety.org/ is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and conservation of hummingbirds. The website provides a wealth of information about hummingbirds, including their biology, behavior, and migration patterns. The website also includes resources for educators and students, as well as information about how to attract hummingbirds to your backyard.
The Audubon Society https://www.audubon.org/birds/hummingbirds (you may need to type hummingbird into the search bar) is another great website for learning about hummingbirds. It provides detailed information about different species of hummingbirds, as well as their migration patterns and habitat needs. The website also includes tips for attracting hummingbirds to your yard, as well as information about how to participate in citizen science projects to help track and monitor hummingbird populations.
Hummingbirds have an incredibly fast metabolism, and they need to consume more than half of their body weight in nectar and insects every day to survive. This means that they have to constantly search for food, and they are able to visit hundreds of flowers in a single day.
Hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly in all directions, including backwards and upside down. They are able to do this because of the unique structure of their wings, which allows them to rotate their wings in a figure-eight pattern.
Hummingbirds have a remarkable memory and are able to remember every flower they have visited and how long it will take for the nectar to replenish. This allows them to optimize their foraging and conserve energy by visiting only the most profitable flowers. Additionally, hummingbirds are able to remember the location of their favorite feeders and will return to them every day at the same time.
Hummingbirds are known for their vibrant and colorful plumage, and each species has its own unique coloration. The colors of hummingbirds are determined by the pigments in their feathers, as well as structural coloration created by the way light reflects off their feathers.
In general, male hummingbirds have more colorful feathers than females. The bright colors of male hummingbirds are often used to attract mates and establish dominance over other males. The colors of hummingbirds can also vary depending on their age, with some species changing color as they mature.
Different species of hummingbirds have different colors, with some being predominantly green, while others may have shades of red, blue, orange, or purple. The color of a hummingbird’s feathers can also vary depending on the angle of the light and the bird’s movements.
In some cultures, the colors of hummingbirds are believed to have symbolic meanings. For example, in Native American culture, the hummingbird is often associated with joy, love, and beauty, and its colors are thought to represent different qualities such as courage, passion, and perseverance.
Overall, the different colors of hummingbirds are a reflection of their incredible diversity and beauty, and they continue to inspire wonder and admiration in people all over the world.
