We bought a $9 humming bird feeder
and attached it to the deck rail at Solitude.
We then enjoyed the show for the rest of our stay.
Humming birds (Trochillidae) are among the world's
smallest birds. They can flap their wings 12-90 times
per second and can fly at 34 miles per hour. They
are the only birds that can fly backwards.
