These magnificent little dynamos burn tremendous amounts of energy and therefore need to feed almost constantly. This little 2 ounce bird will migrate to and from Central America in the spring and fall. They will migrate across the open ocean, flying the Gulf of Mexico, after bulking up from 2 ounces to 4 in order to survive the trip.
