Hummingbird Presentation

Last Friday, the 1st of March, we had a presenter from the Arizona Audubon Chapter come to speak to us about Hummingbirds! We have so many hummingbirds that come to our school each year that I was excited for the students to learn more about our special visitors! We also got fantastic feeders, food and information about hummingbirds so now we can help the Audubon members monitor the birds that come to our school!

I had the students write paragraphs about the information they found the most interesting. Here’s what they had to say:

Female hummingbirds have plane colors and Males have bright colors. Females have plane colors to blend in and protect their babies. Males have colors so that the females can find there male or boy. Males have to attract other female. A hummingbird has to eat a lot of food to fly far.

We learned that hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards.
Hummingbirds come in all sizes. The smallest hummingbird is the size of
your thumb. Hummingbirds flap their wings 10x faster than butterflies.
The male hummingbird is very colorful and the female is plain.

We had a humming bird speaker come in to talk about humming birds with our class. She showed us how far humming birds can fly. Humming bird had to eat a lot of food for energy of course. She also said that male humming birds have bright colors that mean that they are healthy. The female humming bird have dim color to protect them selfs or blend in.
