- Watching Backyard Birds
This issue of WBB has a special focus on hummingbirds. Only one species of hummingbird nests the East, but fifteen species breed in North America, including the orange rufous hummingbird. Hundreds more live in Central and South America, ranging from the tiny blue bee hummingbird, to the robin-sized giant hummingbird. Also in this issue: Read one contributor's story of a hummingbird rescue, and discover ways to deter ants and bees at hummingbird feeders. Find all this and more in the August issue of Watching Backyard Birds!
