Swing Time

Wild - - DID YOU KNOW... -

Ruby-throated Hum­ming­birds know how to make their part­ners swoon. Dur­ing mat­ing sea­son, males will fly to­wards a feed­ing fe­male but just when you think he's go­ing to bump right into her, he'll fly past her. What a dra­matic start to his swing dance! Next he'll fly up to three me­tres and then go right back the other way. He'll keep swing­ing back and forth, mak­ing lit­tle peeps un­til the two love­birds rush off to­gether.
