Spring is coming, bringing birds back to Alaska, and perhaps most delightful and amazing of those returning is the hummingbird. These tiny birds with wings that beat faster than the eye can see cover many thousands of miles, migrating from Florida and Mexico to coastal Alaska, and are occasionally seen in Anchorage too. They are hardy and at the same time astonishingly light and delicate. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’ll be learning about hummingbirds in Alaska.
