5/18/12 – The last few days have brought clear skies, warm weather, and beautiful but busy ruby-throated hummingbirds to the northwoods. Yesterday two unsuspecting hummingbirds accidentally flew into the store and could not make an escape. Luckily a few of the fine crew members here at Sawbill Canoe Outfitters sprang into action and helped the little fellas out.
This little guy landed on a sock and sat perfectly still while Tyler carefully carried him out of the store.
Hummingbirds use so much energy during the day that if they maintained a constant body temperature they would starve. Luckily for them they are able to lower their core temperature up to 30 degrees at night in order to conserve energy. – Jessica
