Questions and Answers about Wild Birds

Question of the week:

How smart is a hummingbird?

A. Real smart, as it turns out.  Their hippocampus – the area of the brain responsible for learning and memory – is up to five times bigger than that in songbirds, seabirds and woodpeckers.

A hummingbird can remember where every flower is located in their territory and how long it takes to refill with nectar.  Not bad for a bird that has a pea-sized brain. So maybe size does not matter after all.

Buntings and grosbeaks are colorful species that exhibit sexual dimorphism (males and females are substantially different in appearance.)

Tanagers are also in the same family but we have listed them separately.  Scientists can not seem to decide just which family the tanagers belong in.

Species in this group include:

Northern Cardinal

Dickcissel

Rose-breasted, Blue and Black-headed Grosbeaks

Indigo, Painted, Varied and Lazuli Buntings
