Artist's Description

All hummingbirds eat nectar from flowering plants; they need the high energy food to power their extremely fast metabolism. In addition, they eat small bugs for the protein content they provide. Calories obtained from nectar and sugar-water from hummingbird feeders is used to power the hummingbirds.
