|My RV's Hummingbird Feeder|
I had made the assumption that they drew their flower nectar in via a suction method as humans do when sucking a straw. Turns out that line of thinking WAS contrary to what ornithologists thought they knew about the mechanical feeding process. They generally thought the birds wicked their nectar.
It turns out they were wrong and new research indicates my uneducated assumption was correct all along.
Even so, I still have a lot to learn about our winged friends.
