Slow motion video of hummingbirds flying, shaking, and drinking from National Geographic. Fantastic.
We have about two dozen ruby throated hummingbirds who summer at our place. If a hummingbird is born here they get this location imprinted in their heads and when they fly to Mexico at the end of the summer and back next spring/summer, they come right back to our feeders. Seriously, if I move the feeder ten feet they hover at the old location and are pissed for a while until they find the new one.
