January brings the first hints of spring to the Pacific Northwest small living gems began to return to the temperate rainforests. They are the only bird that is known to truly hover and are capable of building intricate nests. They are the smallest bird known to science and one of the most likely to attack humans. While a hummingbird dive bomb assault is more entertaining than dangerous their furious chattering can actually be a bit intimidating. So step outside and face the uplifted beak of the tiny terror of the flower bed, if you dare.
