Wild & Weird: Wait, Those Aren't Hummingbirds!
The United States' greatest diversity of hummingbirds is found along the Mexican border in southern Arizona, where at least 13 species can be found each year. Compare that to California, where you aren't likely to find more than seven species of wild hummers, and east of the Mississippi, where you won't see more than two.
For migrating hummingbirds, Tucson, Ariz., is a perfect resting point between nesting grounds up north and wintering grounds in Mexico and Central America — so it's no wonder many Tucsonans love to put out feeders. But other flying critters are also attracted to those feeders, like lesser long-nosed and Mexican long-tongued bats. Watch these bats enjoy the sweet stuff too on Facebook or YouTube.
