One Special Bird: The ruby-throated hummingbird

If I could pump my arms 55 times a second the way these birds flap their wings, I still wouldn’t be able to fly, let alone backwards. It’s amazing to think that they might fly 500 miles, non-stop over the Gulf of Mexico, when they migrate between North America and Mexico or Central America.  Found on Facebook at: Sungazing

  1. Just watched “The Big Year” the other night. Not a terrifically fabulous movie but got me thinking a lot about birds.
