I just love the tiny hummingbird! This year, the little birds graced my backyard from July 12th to September 15th. To be so small, they sure brought me big joy! Every sighting brought a thrill. To be able to watch the tiny birds zoom in and out of the yard in all their amazing beauty was a gift. The birds that come here to Virginia are Ruby Throated hummingbirds. Here is a sampling of the birds that came to visit this year.
These tiny birds, of about 3 inches in size, can fly as fast as 60 miles per hour and flap their wings up to 70 times in a second! They migrate to Mexico and return each year around the same time.
