hummingbird, image,jpg, pictures,images

Hummingbirds are perhaps one of the most popular backyard birds. Everybody wants to attract them to their yard.

Which weighs more, a nickel or a Hummingbird? A nickel weighs 5 grams. But, a Hummingbird only weighs four grams.

A Hummingbird flaps it's wings 55 time per second! They use a lot of energy and require high energy food. Hummingbirds eat more insects than nectar. Ants are their favorite insect meal.

Hummingbird Migrations: Hummingbirds migrate to South and Central America in the Fall of the year. In the spring, they return to North America. Hummingbirds follow long established migration routes.

On average, a Hummingbird lives about four years. But, they have been known to live up to 12 years.

Having a Hummingbird feeder near a window where you can view the birds, is a great pleasure. When you buy a feeder, some hummingbird nectar is often included. After that is used up, you can quickly and easily make your own hummingbird nectar. How to Make Hummingbird Nectar
