You are so fortunate. But we have sunbirds in South Africa which have glorious neon colors. They love the nectar of most flowers, particularly hibiscuses. I still have to work out when they visit as it seems to be somewhat seasonal and I have moved to a new town and a garden that needs more bird attracting shrubs.

  **OOps sorry about the no-message message.
  I watched Hummingbirds in one flower bed while I was working today.
  They went to my Crocosmias, my Daylilies, the Cannas, and my species 
  Fuchsias. I didn't see any around the Impatiens balfouri or the 
  Abutilons, but I may have missed them.
  We have dozens of Hummingbirds. I have to duck at times, they go for my hat.
