INTERESTING FACTS
The Blue-throated Hummingbird is about three times heavier than the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. Unlike most North American hummingbirds, they do not have an aerial display. Instead, the male uses several different vocalizations to defend its territory and attract mates. Up to three broods per year are possible under ideal conditions; the female usually builds each new nest atop the previous nest, leading to nest "towers" at traditional nest sites. A group of hummingbirds has many collective nouns, including a “bouquet", "glittering", "hover", "shimmer", and "tune” of hummingbirds.
