Hummingbirds are one of nature's more exquisite wonders. Of 320 species, only the ruby-throated hummingbird makes it to the Maritimes during breeding season. Coming from Mexico and the Gulf States, it must be a long haul in hummingbird miles! Flitting from flower to flower and feeding every 10 to 15 minutes, they consume their weight in nectar each day. While hovering to feed, their wings beat up to 80 times per second and amazingly they are also able to fly backward. I hope you have had the opportunity to enjoy these delicate little creatures as they buzz around your garden looking for their next sip of nectar.
