Advice from a Hummingbird - Keep your visits short and sweet!
...and Don't get your feathers ruffled over the little things! That tiny, beautiful bird outside your window, who weighs 1/10 of an ounce and flutters her wings 15-80 times every second, is one of 350 known species of hummingbirds. They prefer warm climates and are the only species who can fly backward. With their long pointed beak and extendible tongue they can get to the nectar deep inside the flowers. Hummingbirds have many predators but are very hard to catch because of their speed and agility.
