When I was young, I don't remember seeing many hummingbirds. I think they are something you have to learn to look for. A little ball of fluff will go unnoticed unless your eyes are trained to see them sitting on a limb or darting through the air. I always thought they were a very rare sight. Now that I am much, much older, I have learned to see them. Guess what? They are everywhere. On a walk along the canal, I can see dozens in one day. They are very difficult to photograph. They don't like to hold still. I love the way they dart and zoom.
