There are approximately
18 species of hummingbirds found in North America. To those of us
who live in the eastern half of the U.S. and Canada, only the
Ruby Throat will be seen. The other 17 species are west of the
Rockies (some range as far as Alaska). The majority of
hummingbirds are found in the warmer climates of the Southwest.
These amazing birds vary in size from 3" to 5" in
length. They exist on nectar and insects and consume half their
weight daily. They may visit a flower or feeder as often as every
fifteen minutes. Our HummZinger® feeders provide perches for
hummingbirds to sit and eat and allows us to catch a rare glimpse
of these beautiful creatures feeding at rest. In addition the HummZinger® feeders are constructed with UV
stable polycarbonate, the most durable plastic available and are
dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
