Well, the truth comes out.
I can’t count to three.
As a musician, this is worrisome.
Anyways, it would appear I forgot my 3rd tidbit for you all in yesterday’s post. I hereby post the official 3rd piece of information right here and now:
3.) Rufous Hummingbirds will always defend the same number of flowers in their territory regardless of their territory size. This is because after a certain territory size the energy wasted from flying around defending such a large area outwighs the benefits (in this case, energy gained from nectar).
I like hummingbirds. And I find it fascinating that they just know how many flowers to defend.
So there you are!
Unfortunately, as I just had my ecology exam, this no longer counts as studying…
