  • Whole lotta hummingbirds in northeast Missouri
If you know about hummingbirds -- and Daily RFT does -- you'll know it's unusual to see THIS many swarming a feeder, especially for us city folks. They look durn-near like mosquitoes!

This video below was apparently shot in northeast Missouri and uploaded to YouTube Wednesday.

Also, quiz-time: Geese fly together in a "gaggle;" fish swim together in a "school." What's a group of hummingbirds called?
Answer: They group together in a "charm." Oh hummingbirds, you are a DELIGHT!
