I haven't seen any here on Oahu. I do wonder, if there are no Humming birds, then why do they sell Humming bird feeders? I have had two neighbors who say they have seen one.

No, there are no hummingbirds in Hawaii. What are mistakenly identified as hummingbirds are one of many species of Hummingbird moths, which hover the same way and drink nectar as well.
