May 19, 2011 - Our First Hummingbird

Today we put out our hummingbird feeders and the first hummingbird arrived today!  I just love these little creatures.  Some interesting facts about hummingsbirds:
- smallest bird in the world
- they can hear better than humans
- a hummingbird's baby is about the size of a penny
- they can remember every flower they have been to
- their heart beats 1,260 times per minute
