What is the small, striped hummingbird flying around my flowers at dusk?

North American hummingbirds do not have striped wings. Chances are these tiny "birds" are really moths. A group of moths called "sphinx moths" (Sphingidae) have the common name "hummingbird moth" because at a glance they look and behave like hummingbirds. Check out these web pages to see if your "bird" looks anything like them: HummingbirdMoth.com or another page or check out these links. more
