This is peak hummingbird season in the Carolinas. Thousands of the tiny iridescent birds are on the move and fattening up for a long migration.
Susan Campbell has learned some amazing facts about ruby-throated hummingbirds through her research. For example: They start their migration to Mexico and Central America for the winter on the exact same day and time every year.
