Hummingbird eggs are the tiniest in the world. The females build their nests from fluff and spider webs for a nest that is soft and actually stretches as the babies get larger.
Tucson is home to a large variety of hummingbirds. Some migrate hundreds of miles to Tucson for the winter and go back in the summer to areas such as Mexico.
They remember where they can feed and often return the next year. Much like people using their favorite rest stops on long journeys.
