Ruby Throated Hummingbird
Who doesn't marvel to see a small humming-bird zinging around the yard, darting here and there, hovering over a flower or feeder for its meal! The tiny ruby-throated hummingbird does some pretty amazing feats simply by instinct, such as flying 500 miles to Panama from Florida across the Gulf of Mexico without stopping to eat! I've driven some long miles in my life, but I can tell you honestly that I have never made one of those trips without first mapping out how to get there. This little bird has both incredible mapping skills as well as phenomenal flying abilities. Share these amazing facts with your family friends by clicking on the links below!
