National Park Service: Junior Ranger Online - Junior Ranger, Jr. Explores Hummingbirds

Imagine, make, move and explore the world of hummingbirds!

This wildlife activity page is part of a series for ages 3-6.

Adults and young children can use some or all of the activities to explore nature together inside and outside the home.

If you were a ruby-throated hummingbird, you would have shiny green feathers that cover the top of your head, back, wings, and tail. If you were a male, your throat would be bright red. Females have a pale throat. If you were hungry, you would fly quickly from flower to flower, using your long bill to sip the sweet nectar inside. You like red and orange flowers best. If you wanted to talk to other hummingbirds, you would make short and fast chip calls. SingĀ chee dit, chee dit, chee dit!
