All about humming birds
We went to Rockwood Reserves for a class about humming birds.
The presenter wanted us to understand how fast a humming bird can beat its wings.
So… Flap your wings for 10 seconds and count how many times you did it.
Some humming birds migrate over the Gulf of Mexico which is a 500 mile trip – with NO stops!!! (They travel about 25 mph for 20 hours)
😳 Humming Birds are AMAZING!
After our class, the presenter took us outside to see some native flowers that Humming Birds eat.
Bleeding Hearts ❣
(Emergent Reader Eli learned that the f sound is also spelled with a ph)
They are edible and delicious!😋
Humming bird nests are the size of a walnut…
After the class, the kids played in the creek for a bit…
And we ended our wonderful time at the Reserves with a family selfie – which isn’t easy with so many faces! 😜
Of course we had to make some sugar water to put in our feeder at home.
(Boil 2 cups of water and add 1/2 of sugar)
