Hummingbirds | What You Can Do To Make A Difference
People talk about how quickly hummingbirds flap their wings (60 - 200 times per second), but seriously, do you know how much nectar you have to guzzle to sustain that kind of aerobic acrobatics? Twice your body weight, daily!
Honestly, though, it always feel so special catching a glimpse of these amazing birds in action. It's time for us to start taking action to help endangered hummingbird species like the Short-crested Coquette from Mexico who are suffering from dramatic habitat loss.
Out of 34 of these species, roughly 10%, are currently threatened. Their biggest threats are loss of habitat and increased use of pesticides which impact their food supply and depletes nutrition. Some other threats are cold and erratic weather conditions and flying into large window glass.
