Adopt a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird

Ruby-throated hummingbirds spend their summers throughout the eastern United States. In autumn, they migrate to the wintering grounds in Central America. Some ruby-throated hummingbirds have been known to winter in southern Florida. They prefer habitats where there are a lot of flowers, such as fields, parks, backyards and open clearings in forests. Today, the use of pesticides and habitat lose pose a great threat to the future survival of the hummingbird. Hummingbirds are very small and weigh less than a quarter of an ounce. They move quickly by rapidly beating their wings and are the only birds that are able to fly backwards and hover in one spot. Ruby-throated hummingbirds call with a mouse-like squeak and the beat of the wings makes a humming sound, hence the name, hummingbird.
