Quiz of the Day
  
  
ANSWER: False
  
  • First of all, hummingbirds don‚Äôt live on nectar alone: insects are the bulk of their diet.
  • When looking for nectar, while they are indeed attracted to the colors red and orange, but they actually drink nectar from a variety of flowers that have a specific sugar content (10-25%).
  • Red hummingbird feeders simply help them identify a potential food source from a distance. We are just beginning to learn about their sense of smell.¬†This recent study¬†found they do sense chemical cues from some insects.¬†(SOURCE:¬†empressofdirt.net)
