Hummingbird Video

Comment
Thank you Fred! The Hummingbird is the smallest of birds. How large do you think the actual body of the hummingbird would be without its feathers? Not much larger than a bumblebee, I venture to guess. Yet this little creature flies from Panama to Canada and back again every year of its brief life, that it may live where flowers, and the tiny insects that infest them, will furnish drink and food the year around. The ruby-throated hummingbird has plenty of relatives who stay all year in the tropics. But the ruby-throated hummingbird is the only hummer bold enough to venture into the eastern United States and eastern Canada.
Enjoy,
Susan
