Hummers have a faint ittle sound they make. My wife can hear it but my ears ring from tinnitus so I usually can't hear it. The sound of their wings as they buzz by is unmistakable. It's sort of a hum I suppose? We have 5 feeders in the yard with 2 dozen hummers competing for a sip.

I know they do not sing but chirp. I watched this guy for awhile and he/she seemed to be taking a break. Sometimes when they fly, and I've heard it myself, their flying sound is similar to a faint whistling.
