  1. Did you know that Hummingbirds can live 10 years? Anyway,there is a serious lack of people banding Hummingbirds in Central America. Read this article if you have an interest. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/hummingbirds-live-long-and-travel-far/ Tiny tags reveal secrets of hummingbird lifeThe perfecting of placing tiny numbered bands on their legs in the last decade has led researchers to discover hummingbirds can live longer than 10 years as opposed to the two or three once thought likely. And astonishing migrations have been found, with a Rufous hummingbird caught in Florida one winter showing up the following summer more than 3,500 miles away in southeast Alaska. Some birds have even been discovered wintering in areas where temperatures drop below zero degrees. "We're learning a lot about hummingbirds through banding we never would have learned otherwise," said Bruce Peterjohn, chief of the bird banding laboratory for the U.S. Geological Survey's Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, Maryland.
