Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are the only hummingbird that breeds in the eastern United States. They shimmer like gems as they flit from flower to flower, beating their wings faster than the eye can comprehend (about 53 times a second!). They prefer to feed at red or orange colored flowers to obtain the fuel they need to maintain such an incredibly fast metabolism.
