Sitting Pretty

Ruby-throated hummingbirds are the most common species in the eastern U.S. They range from southern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico in summer, and winter in Mexico, Central America, and the Carribean. Scientists believe that some hummers cross the Gulf of Mexico -a 500-mile trip- in one 20-hour non-stop flight during migration.
