Two nights ago the DFO’s zoom meeting featured a talk about hummingbirds by Sheri Williamson—she was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and entertaining.
Here are a few interesting tidbits I jotted down from her talk:
Hummingbirds are the smallest, warm-bodied creatures on earth !
Hummingbird’s brain, proportionate to body size, is larger than the human brain to its body size, WoW
And as Sheri also pointed out there is now another reason to step outside and go birding is that the Amethyst-throated Mountain-Gem from South America is on the move now showing up in odd places in North America. Could Colorado be its next stop?
