You don't have to go to zoos or national parks to find nature or interesting animals. These are hummingbirds right in my backyard that visit our feeder everyday in the summer. They stay around here until November.

Did you know that they are the smallest birds and their wings beat about 50 times a second? They live about three or four years. They are carnivores. They are eating this nectar for energy to catch the bugs. In the Winter they migrate South to Mexico and Central America. They fly alone, not in flocks. You should get a feeder and find some hummingbirds in your yard soon. Watch my video:
