I think they do Sarah. I am not quiet sure, but I've seen thousands of hummingbirds in different places, and all of of them seems to like the rain.

What a neat fact! Do all hummingbirds like the rain? Love the name of this one too.

They really love the rain ... sometimes they spend quiet a lot of time in the rain cleaning their feathers.

Lovely picture. Such a sweet, delicate bird. Love the raindrops on the beak.
