All Seasons Hobby Guide

A Hobby for All Seasons

The average backyard may be visited regularly by 15 to 20 different bird species. However, a bird-friendly yard can attract up to 100 or more different species. To attract the greatest number of bird species, just provide at least one of each of these habitat elements: food, water, cover and places to raise their young. To find out more information about the bird activity in our area, visit our store.

Hummingbirds

Fun Facts About Hummingbirds

  • There are 18 hummingbird species in North America. Hummingbirds are found no where else in the world except the New World (North, Central, and South America.)
  • There are over 325 species of hummingbirds, making them the second largest bird family in the world, second only to flycatchers.
  • Hummingbirds weigh 1/10th of an ounce; about the weight of a penny.
  • Hummingbirds’ brains are about the size of a BB.
  • Hummingbirds’ hearts are larger proportionally to their body than any other bird or mammal.
  • Hummingbirds have such underdeveloped legs that they are unable to walk well.
  • A mother hummingbird weighs only about eight times more than her egg.
  • Hummingbirds lay the world’s smallest bird egg.
  • Hummingbirds generally lay two eggs, each about the size of a blueberry.
  • Hummingbirds learn to associate flower colors, like red, with food. They do not have an innate preference for red.
  • They drink nectar from plants and sugar water from feeders.
  • Hummingbirds lap up nectar with their long tongues. There is a groove on either side of the tongue that creates a capillary action to help draw the nectar up the tongue and into the mouth during the lapping action.
  • While lapping up nectar, Hummingbirds can move their tongues in and out of their bill at a rate of up to 12 times a second.

 

How to Choose the Best Hummingbird Feeder

 

 

Watch Our Barred Owl Nest Cam!

A mama Barred Owl has set up residence in our owl nest box again this year. Jim Carpenter, President & CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, has hosted a camera-equipped owl box in his backyard for many years and it's time to check in on this year's residents.

Mama moved into the box in early March. If all goes well, we can expect the owlets to start hatching in mid-April. They'll leave the nest four to five weeks after hatching.

Stop by often to watch the live streaming video from the nest box 24 hours a day!
