Sometimes we hear about strange and interesting creatures that are found far off in exotic lands. Well, one of the most remarkable creatures of all is found right here — a native of North and South America. This is the hummingbird, the smallest and most brilliant of birds. There are about 500 different kinds of hummingbirds in South America and 16 species in western North America. The only hummingbird found east of the Mississippi River is the ruby- throated hummingbird. The hummingbird gets its name from the humming sound made by the vibrating wings. A Hummingbird doesn't fly the way other birds do. Its wings move so rapidly that they cannot be seen clearly by the eye, so that when you look at a hummingbird hovering over a flower it seems to be suspended in mid-air as if by magic! A hummingbird has a long tongue which can be folded lengthwise to form a sucking lube. It sticks this tongue into flowers and sucks up the nectar, somewhat the way butterflies do. It eats spiders and insects it finds on plants and sometimes it captures them on the wing! The bill of the hummingbird varies with the species. In some cases, the slender bill is shorter than the rest of the head, as with most birds. But some hummingbirds have a bill that is actually longer than the rest of the body. One kind, the sicklebill hummingbird has a bill that curves dowo- kanl like a hook. The ruby-throated hummingbird, which is found in the eastern part of the United States, is only about throe and a half inches Tree of Life 637 Discover the joy of crewel em- >roidery—do this panel in wool jr 6-strand cotton.
