HOW DOES TEMPERATURES AFFECT MIGRATION AND (A ZIP-A-DEE-DOO-DAH PHOTO BLOG)



Hi Everybody!!
"Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah,  Zip-a-Dee-Ay, my oh my what a wonderful day!
 Something about the top photo makes me sing the Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah song! (For those of You too young to remember this song, I have included Wikimedia Info below). Temperature is a very strong factor in the Hummingbird Migration. The Hummers' main food source is insects. Flower nectar and sweet water are like appetizers. As the cold line comes down from the North, the insects fly South. The birds follow the food. As far as I can tell, the reason for migration is food. They use their bills like fishing poles and snatch the tiny insects out of the air! The insects feed on flowers. Insects do not fly and flowers do not bloom in frozen temperatures, so everybody heads South!

Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" is a song from the Disney 1946 live action and animated movie Song of the South, sung by James Baskett.[1]With music by Allie Wrubel and lyrics by Ray Gilbert, "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" won the Academy Award for Best Original Song.[1] It was the second in a long line of Disney songs to win this award, after "When You Wish upon a Star" from Pinocchio.[1]
For many years the song was part of an opening theme medley for the Wonderful World of Disney television program and it has often been used in other TV and video productions by the studio. It is one of many popular songs that features a bluebird ("Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder"), epitomized by the "Bluebird of Happiness," as a symbol of cheer.

Thank You for enjoying the Hummingbird Migration as it happened here on Rainbow Creek! Please revisit the albums at anytime to see again things you might have missed about the bird behavior. I created a great amount of 'field notes' (pics) while they were here. Please add your comments about your observations and thanks for the plus ones! By this coming Sunday, our Migration will be over at the Rainbow Creek Location. (sadly)  If You have been viewing the migration with me, then You know how much activity has been happening with the hundreds of tiny birds! Remember 99 % of the people in the world have no idea about these birds! 
Inform Them and Share the Joy!
...this is brendasue signing off from Rainbow Creek.  See You next time!
