The Hummingbirds Are Back and Hummmingbird Favorite Knows How to Draw Them In!

(PRWEB) June 18, 2003

Every year people enjoy watching hummingbirds as they feed from outdoor feeders. Hummmingbird Favorite is a way to give hummingbirds a taste of home as they migrate north through the United States. It is a special pure herbal formula made from plants found along hummingbird migration routes. This special formula was developed by Richard Pirtle and perfected for over ten years before being released to the general public in August 2000. There are lots of hummingbird feeders in Los Angeles, CA and Mr. Pirtle was having trouble luring hummingbirds away from his neighbors. He started thinking of ways to make his nectar more tasteful, remembered a research trip he made with Texas Tech University to Central America in 1987, and came up with the ideas behind Hummmingbird Favorite. This nectar works like a dream as dedicated customers have written time and time again. It is sold with or without coloring so even the purists are happy. If you want to become the most popular hummingbird feeder in your neighborhood, Hummmingbird Favorite is definitely the way to go. Please visit our website at

—John James Audubon

Hummingbirds are fascinating little creatures that have captured the imagination of people for thousands of years. Since they are only found in the Americas, the myths and legends about this tiny bird originated from the peoples of North and South America. These native cultures wrote stories to offer explanations for the behavior and physical characteristics of this graceful species: Why does the hummingbird drink nectar? What accounts for its amazing flying abilities? Why is the hummingbird attracted to the color red?

Jeannette Larson and Adrienne Yorinks have compiled facts and folklore about these intriguing fliers that will answer these questions and many more. Readers will also get a glimpse into the different cultures that have been transfixed for centuries by this bird, as well as learn many interesting scientific facts discovered by modern-day ornithologists. Adrienne’s bold and unique mixed-media quilts illustrate the hummingbird in nature and the mystery of these birds in ancient folklore. “Jeanette Larson and Adrienne Yorinks have woven together a compendium of information and folklore about that most wondrous of all winged creatures, the enigmatic hummingbird. In this seamless presentation of words and art, readers of all ages will find enormous appreciation for this tiny, enchanting creature. “
