        Nature | Extraordinary Birds: Little Brain, Big Journey

        The Rufous hummingbird is a small wonder that, with respect to body size, migrates farther than any other creature on earth. The brightly colored, feisty bird breeds from southern Alaska to northern California and then spends the winter in Mexico. Though their brains are approximately the size of a grain of rice, Rufous hummingbirds have an excellent memory for locating flowers from year to year. In this video segment from Nature, learn about the little brain and big journey of the Rufous hummingbird.

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
