Outdoor Hour Challenge
Green Birds – Ruby Throated, Black Chinned and Anna’s Hummingbirds
Use the links above to find out more information for the birds included in this Outdoor Hour Challenge. This is a week of looking for hummingbirds! I haven’t seen any hummers in my yard yet because we don’t have any winter resident hummingbirds, but when I lived in California we had Anna’s hummingbirds year round in our feeders.
Last summer here in Oregon we had rufous hummingbirds with their mechanical wing sound. I can hardly wait to see their return!
We’ll be reading about hummingbirds in the Handbook of Nature Study as a refresher and then looking up our local hummingbirds in the field guide.
There is information in the challenge link above about how to get started with a hummingbird feeder in your own yard…give it a try!
