One of the many fascinating creatures we have the good fortune of observing is the amazing Hummingbird. They come in all sizes, shapes and colors and are populated all over the world but something about them just lures us. These are the smallest birds on the planet and they weigh just a little more than a penny. A Hummingbirds heart beats approximately 1,260 times a minute. I have real little stethoscope you know! Did you know they have tiny tongues that actually lap the nectar, no they don't suck up the juice through those long sharp beaks. Two weeks ago while in Taos NM a mountain community north of Albuqueruqe New Mexico we got some great video and stills I hope you like. Watch for those little tongues that look like very fine fishing line. Enjoy the Dance of the New Mexico Hummingbirds. Turn up your speakers!
