RUBY THROAT by Robert M. McClung


Email this review


The first hummingbird story, so far as I know, and a text that provides a pleasant way to learn true facts of natural history in the year's cycle in the life of a humming-bird. From the mating of the parent birds, the story goes very simply and directly through the pattern, -- nest building, hatching eggs, feeding the young. Then in the baby bird cycle, the learning independence, the flight south for the winter, the return in the spring, and the seeking a mate. Easy reading for second year readers.
