I live in Tampa very near Busch Gardens every year we get a blast of these little birds about an inch big gray with a small crest on their head. They come in drolls and make sharp little chirpy noises. I mean they are no bigger than an insect. They perch on twigs no bigger than toothpicks. I am delighted to see them, but can't figure out what they are. The closest thing I can find is tufted titmouses but according to their description they are too big. They don't make the same sound as a finch. Yet they are smaller than a hummingbird. What are these charming little birds?

hi, I've been online looking for this little bird and can't find anything other than the Bee hummingbird. The female is gray but the males are bright red and blues. They generally stay in the Cuban area but have been seen in Florida. The Bee hummer is the smallest bird in the world!
