General Hummingbird Discussion

Post by Amaroqwolf » Wed Aug 11, 2010 10:27 am

One day when i was at home, I was asked to close the garage door. When i entered my garage later on that day i saw a hummingbird on the ground. it couldnt fly because its wings were covered in cobwebs. I took him outside and sat for half an hour trying to get it free. On the last strand of cobweb, the humming bird flew out of my hand and its legs got caught on a tree. it was really high. I had to climb it to get him down. After we freed the bird, It flew away. But every week the same exact hummingbird comes to visit us.We named him Lucky

Hummingbirds are so cool. At my grandma's house, they were always flying around her garden. Such beautiful little creatures~

Hummingbirds are one of my favorite birds. Around here where I live we have ruby-throated hummingbirds. But one of my favorite species of hummingbird is the Rufous Hummingbird. I saw one when I was visiting my aunt in the mountains of Colorado. She had a hummingbird feeder out and a golden hummingbird would come around to feed from it. I later found out is was called the Rufous.

Also, I heard this one fact out there that there is a species of hummingbird that weighs less than a penny. :shock: That must be a very small bird.

Here is a website that talks all about hummingbirds...

I absolutely love birdwatching/identification, and it's quite a reward after watching dull-colored winter birds, to see beautiful displays of vibrant colors on hummingbirds. I only have two kinds of hummingbirds where I live; the Ruby-throated, and the Black-chinned.
It's great to hear stories about bird rescuing. I have saved about three or four birds, and it's a wonderful feeling to see them fly off (or not, there was a bluebird fledgling one time that had been attacked by a cat, and I couldn't save the poor little creature I had named Bluebell).
However, I'm surprised a hummingbird wouldn't try to at least hide behind something when you came out. Anyways, a lovely and admirable story.
