IN this blog post, I'll be charting all of the taxonomic changes to the hummingbird family.

First off, this is a very daunting task because there are so many genera and species of hummingbirds. Even though we know, what a hummingbird is and what is not, that still does not mean changes won't take place!

The latest changes are based on Taxonomy in Flux, as well as H&M-4 (Dickinson and Remsen, 2013). For the sake of TiF, I'll be using the arrow () symbol, so it'll look like I'm not copying Boyd.
