Gratitude and Hummingbirds

Happy Thankful Thursday!! 

May your day be filled with lots of thankfulness!

We are on letter Hh of the Gratitude Alphabet! H is for Hummingbird!

Joey is thankful for Hummingbirds! He loves to sit in his backyard and watch the hummingbirds fly backwards, sideways, and upside down!! Hummingbirds can even hover in place! Hummingbirds are one of the smallest birds in the world. The Bee hummingbird is the smallest bird in the world.

What are you thankful for that begins with the letter Hh?


Here are some facts about Hummingbirds:

1. There are over 350 different hummingbird species.

2. Hummingbirds can weigh up to 4.5 grams. A nickel weighs about 5 grams.

3. The hummingbird is the smallest migrating bird.

4. Hummingbirds have no sense of smell.

5. Hummingbirds can’t walk or hop. They can only use their small legs to perch.

6. Hummingbird eggs are about the size of a very small jelly bean. The eggs weigh no more than a paper clip.

7. Hummingbirds can live up to five years.

8. The rarest type of the hummingbird species is the Leucistic hummingbird.
