Those who don’t believe in magic have never seen a hummingbird! Ruby-throated hummingbirds beat their wings at about 40 to 50 times each second—so fast that all we can see with the naked eye is a blur of wings.

Hummingbird Magic

Dashing and darting

Hovering to sip nectar—

Acrobat of air!

Fueling Up

The hummingbird knows

It is time to sip, sip, sip—

Ready to migrate!
