WHAT IS A HUMMINGBIRD?


The average lifespan is about 3 years. Some live at least twice that long. The record is 12 years. There are 300 different species of Hummingbird and they are attracted by flowers like honeysuckle, petunias, nasturtiums, and lilacs. Their Eggs incubate for 2-3 weeks before hatching.



The hummingbird's agility in flight lets it move quickly from flower to flower like an insect. Although it tends to feed from red flowers, at least thirty-one different plants have flowers which attract the ruby-throated hummingbird. They include honeysuckle, petunias, nasturtiums, and lilacs.

Flying from flower to flower, the hummingbird pollinates the plants it feeds on. Because it can hover for long periods of time (wings beat 20-50 times a second), the hummingbird can effectively suck out all the nectar it needs from a flower with its long, fine bill. Although nectar is its main food, providing essential high-energy sugars, hummingbirds will also eat some insects and spiders. The hummingbird is not attracted to regular bird feeders, but it will feed on red-colored sugarwater offered from a drip tube.
