 Facts, Myths and Nature! 
 
Did you know...
 
  • The Northern Cardinal is the most popular state bird? Seven states chose it!
  • Hummingbirds are extremely loyal to feeding sites? If they feed in your yard one year, you'll see them the next.  (Keep your feeders out...Hummers are building up strength for their fall migration.)
  • As many as 40% of birds cheat on their mates? DNA testing in birds like flycatchers, warblers and swallows proved he's not the daddy.
 
Do you believe...
 
  • Birds' feet will freeze to metal birdfeeder perches? Birds' feet are actually well protected against cold weather with scaly tissue and a low blood flow to the feet to minimize cold damage.
  •  Birds are stupid? Don't let size fool you! Birds can recognize relatives they haven't seen in years, tell a neighbor from a stranger just by its voice, remember the location of food they hid months ago and even use tools. (from The Private Lives of Birds)
