“Like the hummingbird sipping nectar from every flower I fly joyfully through my days,
seeing beauty in everything”
I find the little hummingbird to be a remarkable creature. Every year, I wait patiently for the Ruby Throated Humming bird to make an appearance (Well, to be more accurate, I wait impatiently). For me, the return of the little bird means that summer has finally arrived after one of our long Michigan winters.
The Ruby Red-Throated Hummingbird in no bigger than 3 ½ inches but can fly backwards as well as straight up and down which I find incredible amazing. Not to mention, that the little tiny bird can fly up to 34 miles an hour.
I can always view these little birds zooming all around my porch as they steal nectar from my feeders. I can hear their twittering little squeaks as they fly around. The squeaks are like a high chatter which tells me they are around.
So, the next time something zooms past, take a second look, the creature may not be a large insect but a tiny little bird welcoming the warm weather back to Michigan.
