Caption: It's still warm enough to see hummingbirds feeding on a variety of flowering plants. And studies have shown that seeing hummingbirds in North Carolina during months which are normally colder is becoming more common. With their wings beating around 55 times a second, these gorgeous tiny birds can hover, fly backwards and dart around a forest & field faster than we can often visually follow.
