Default Hummingbird Vine=Trumpet Vine?

Is a "hummingbird vine" the same as a trumpet vine?

Thanks in advance,

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Ipomoea quamoclit (aka Cypress Morning Glory,
Star Glory, Cardinal Climber,) and Campsis radicans (aka trumpet creeper
or vine, cow-itch vine) both get called Hummingbird Vines. And it wouldn't
surprise me if in some regions from time to time ANY vine with red flowers
that attract hummingbirds gets called a hummingbird vine.

What I always thought of hummingbird vine was a type of Trumpet
Honeysuckle (coral honeysuckle) rather than the Trumpet Vine.

The yellow colored honeysuckle will attract them too, but you're right- they
like the orangey/red colors best, it seems like.
