I am doing a project testing what color they really like using different colored feeders. I can't find any science book that says for sure if hummingbirds are born liking red, learn to like red, or don't even care about colors, and just go to the first color they see. I need to know to make a good hypothesis. I found something from Jan. 28, 1998 in your archive, but it just says hummingbirds seem to like red. Do you have any more information? We mostly have buff-bellied hummingbirds in Brownsville in my yard. Please anwer soon at aol address. Thanks alot! Alice
Re: Do hummingbirds really always prefer red? Is that inborn?
