Weekly Puzzler #55

birdd-0094Woo hoo, the ruby-throated hummingbirds have returned!!!

I spotted a male this morning, stopping at my feeder for a long drink.  Seeing them for the first time each spring makes my heart smile, knowing they have traveled so long to get here and have had to overcome numerous challenges. For me it’s like when I see an old friend and want to pull her/him into an embrace and say, “Wow, it’s so great to see you!” (Read more about their MIGRATION here.)

So I HAD to share this, just as I feel compelled to use them as my weekly puzzler. (Here’s a past PUZZLER that featured a hummingbird)

The question for this week then is how many FEATHERS does a Ruby-throated Hummingbird have? Check back next Saturday to learn the answer!

And if you live in NC or places south, start looking–maybe you will see one today too! If you do, I’d love to know. If you want to learn more about these amazing birds, Click HERE or HERE.

HAPPY SATURDAY and Happy Easter.
