Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Ruby-throated Hummingbird Plush

Proving that size isn’t everything, this tiny bird packs a lot of power: not only do its wings sustain a rate that can top 50 beats per second, it crosses the Gulf of Mexico during migration in a single non-stop flight.

When you adopt a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, you support Audubon’s conservation work to protect birds and the places they need. You’ll receive:

  • A lifelike plush male Ruby-throated Hummingbird that plays a recording of its chirp when squeezed
  • Personalized Adoption certificate and letter from Audubon CEO, David Yarnold
