We're reading up on ruby-throated hummingbirds (& the other varieties, as well) today because we saw some this weekend, apparently on their migration south. (To be clear, we knew nothing about hummingbirds except they are beautiful & native to North America.) They are so beautiful; tiny but tough. For a great resource visit Cornell's All About Birds.

Two more hummingbird links: hummingbird cupcakes & a coloring pages for children.
