These miniature marvels have been migrating between North and Central America for hundreds of years, a round trip in which millions of hummingbirds instinctively participate.
For the next few months, backyards around the area will be playing host to these amazing, food-frenzied birds. They possess the fastest metabolism of any animal on the planet, burning through between one to two times their body weight in food every day.
Despite popular belief, hummingbirds do not suck up nectar with their bills. They actually lap it up with their tongues, drawing nectar from its source up and into their mouths almost 12 times a second.
Hummingbirds will head back to Mexico and Central America in late summer, early fall.
Our specially designed WBU Hummingbird Feeders have built-in ant moats to keep bugs out and feeding ports that prevent rain water from diluting the nectar solution. They’re easy to hang or pole-mount and easy to clean (top shelf dishwasher safe). They’re also backed with a lifetime guarantee.
