The ruby-throated hummingbird is a wonder of migra-
tion. Every winter it makes an amazing journey. Some
have been known to make a journey of 2500 miles or
more, from Alaska to Central America. Because of it,
the hummingbird is a symbol for accomplishing that
which seems impossible. It will teach you how to find
the miracle of joyful living from your own life circum-
