In the middle of May the Hummingbirds show up at our feeders here in Eastern Canada. They migrate from Mexico to here in Eastern Canada annually. Part of their journey is a 800 km leg across the Gulf of Mexico. Bewildered how such a small creature could fly that far, the old people use to say they made their journey on the backs of the migrating ducks. Hummingbirds are smart and use a variety of materials to build their camouflage nest that look like a knot in a tree. They can beat their wings about 75 times a second. That is a lot of beets from here to Mexico. How they find their way to Mexico from Canada and then back again bewilders science. Not likely we will ever know but I get lost driving to Toronto.
