Hummingbird looking for food + shade at Bear Springs Blossom Nature Preserve, TX

Hummingbirds belong to the Trochilidae family.

'Hmmm, that nectar tastes good ..'
Science Biology online classes: hummingbird family Trochilidae, seen frequently in Texas, often you hear his humm first, then see the kolibri, hummingbird family TrochilidaeThere are over 320 species of hummingbirds:
You can see them in the Americas from southern Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, and at most Caribbean islands.
The biggest variety lives in tropical and subtropical Central and South America.
Surprisingly, some species can withstand frost and high altitudes.

Hummingbird's heart rate can reach as high as 1,260 beats per minute and as low as 1 beat per minute.
Hummingbird's height: ~ 3 to 5 inches
Weight depends on the species
A ruby-throated-hummingbird weighs only ~3 grams
that is less than the weight of a nickel
Before migration they can double their weight to have enough energy for the long flight!
Some hummingbirds can get older than 10 years.

Most hummingbirds have a long tongue.
Every species has a different beak fitting to the flowers they visit to eat / pollinate.
Many different colors occur
When you hear one, you know why it got its name hummingbird.
Its wings beat so fast, you barely can see them.
Speeds up to 40 miles per hour can be achieved especially during the mating dance,
when hummingbirds play a melody with their tail feathers to impress the females.
Science biology online education: hummingbirds are small, tiny birds, like a fight, eat insects and love sugar water hummingbird Kolibri

Hummingbird Travel
Article by Bill Lindemann

I spent this past weekend in Rockport helping with the 23rd annual Hummer/Bird Celebration and was amazed with the number of hummingbirds I saw – not just at feeders, but out in the country as well. Just driving along highways I could see them passing by in front of the car. While helping guide a field trip to the Fennessey Ranch in Refugio County, I was amazed at seeing large numbers of them go overhead in the brush country. It seemed all were at full throttle as they passed by.
Almost all of these birds were Ruby-throated Hummingbirds heading south to the tropics from their breeding grounds across the eastern half of the country. One of the reasons the folks in Rockport and Fulton have the festival in their honor is that towns along the coast are staging areas in preparation for their long journey over the Gulf of Mexico to the Yucatan Peninsula . Some of the hummingbirds follow the coastline rather than making the dangerous trek over the water.
This weekend I observed a first in my more than 45 years of birding – standing at the shoreline and seeing the hummingbirds zipping past on their way to the tropics. The place was Indian Point, a small park between Corpus Christi and Portland . I was there to help with a shorebird field trip for the Hummer/Bird Celebration, but it was hard to concentrate on the shorebirds with the hummingbirds passing within a couple of feet, or less, of my head. In addition to the hummingbirds, hundreds, maybe thousands, of swallows were streaming by the point on their way to the tropics as well.
The park has a raised boardwalk that heads out over a marsh area allowing birders to see shorebirds along small lakes and tidal channels. Looking northward one could pick up the hummingbirds flying just above the vegetation before rising up to clear the board walk. They seemed to be at full speed as they passed close enough to hear the whirring sound of their wings. I noticed that as they passed over the shoreline they started to climb to a higher altitude much like an airplane taking off. They were still rising as they disappeared out of sight. Completely awed by what I was witnessing, my mind began to wander as to what was occurring within these little green “bullets” that were heading southward. I am sure that the birds were a mixture of adults who have made the trip before and youngsters embarking on their first adventure. It is fascinating to think about the process of migration. These birds are born with imprinted patterns in their tiny brains that direct their actions to carry out this trip of more than a thousand miles to an unknown destination.
We do not know what information a hummingbird brain is processing as it is migrating. I am imagining, which birds are not likely capable of doing, all of the perils that these birds will be facing along their route to the tropical region, such as storms, predators, and fatigue. These birds are following imprinted orders in their brains until something stops them, or they arrive at their destination. It is also interesting to imagine what factors are involved in the decision as to where to end their voyage – Mexico , Central America or South America.
Even more fascinating is the process of knowing when it is time to head back to where their started their migration trip. We know that many of the birds will find their way back to the places where they entered the world, such as your backyard or neighborhood. Few statistics exist regarding the life spans of hummingbirds, possibly five years or so. If a hummingbird lives for five years, he will make up to ten of these migration trips in his lifetime, but most incredible is that initial trip where everything is not previously experienced and he is flying on instinct alone.
As a footnote to this article, I was amazed to see how many hummingbirds are still at my feeders in mid-September. My concern and hope is that they can find enough nourishment to make the trip that lies ahead of them. We wish them good fortune in their journey.

ocean biology: coral reefs are essential for life on Earth. Earth needed corals to produce oxygen, to stabilize climate, humans need ocean food. Coral reefs host 50% of sea life. Bear Springs Blossom's international ocean conservation + protection plan provides information on corals, marine life, protecting earth oceans. Facts about coral reefs, coral composition, how to reduce ocean pollution

Mammals
Conservation education explain why to protect oceans, protect whales + dolphins from over-fishing to over-polluting seas. Oceans stabilize climate, whales balance the life in oceans. Nature conservation dolphins, reducing greenhouse gases that cause climate change + global warming internationally. Earth's ocean food chain needs whales, dolphins + porpoises. Earth oceans food feeds over one billion humans
BSB Nature conservation online education: Black bears in US for two million years: Black Bears, lat. Ursus americanus, US native, Southern United States black bears remain in protected mountains, woodlands, parks, preserves. Bears who wander outside nature preserves to find new habitats are endangered
Online education Biology: Buffalo Latin bison bison once roamed on US prairies without overgrazing, destroying land, conserving grass prairies. Buffaloes, huge mammals, food + living for Native Americans
Science base conservation through history education to keep Nature beautiful: Humans have endangered the life of many bats, killed many with pesticides and habitat loss
International Water conservation for healthy drinking water is part of BSB nature education classes, clean ocean water, natural rivers, creeks without pollution. Water conservation through fewer chemicals, water treatment plans. Water conservation = balanced climate, without food shortages. Polluted water causes higher food prices. Water conservation: affordable, efficient if all conserve. Learn how to reduce water waste, water pollution. Humans need to drink water. Drinking water has many health benefits. Earth's permanent water cycle provides rain, floods, clouds, mist. BSB volunteers teach how to reduce water consumption, conserve water
Biology Economy: soil conservation to secure food supply, drinking water supply. Soil conservation for a balanced climate. Reduce erosion, chemical soil contamination = soil conservation. CO2 levels is in soil, disturbed soil causes climate change
Science Biology online: Nature in Texas with many native plant varieties, native trees + wildlife endangered, many solutions on nature preservation issues, to restore Nature, to conserve natural bird habitat, to enjoy beautiful photos, and see how great Nature protection based on updated nature education can be
