Living all the way from the rocky coast of Nova Scotia to the forests of Brazil, hummingbirds can be found in a vast range of climates. Recently, the National Geographic Magazine created this multimedia portrait of these hardy creatures and placed it online for the general public. On the homepage, visitors can read a brief overview essay on the lives of hummingbirds, and then continue on to over of the site's six primary sections. These sections include a photo gallery, an "On Assignment" area which includes field notes from staff photographer Luis A. Mazariegos, and a "Learn More" area, which includes links to relevant websites. The real highlight of the site is the narrated tour by Ernie Franzgrote into the lives of different hummingbirds, including the violet-capped, the purple-crowned, and the marvelous spatuetail.
