Festive Coquette
Conditions can be harsh in the northern parts of this range. To avoid the hardships of North America's winter, hummingbirds of that region must migrate south each fall and return again when spring once again brings warmth. Page 12.

Allen's Hummingbird
Hummingbirds have limited vocalization ability. The sounds they produce using their voice are limited to buzzes and chirps but are far from complex. They do not sing complex song patterns. They can use their wings to produce a humming sound and can snap their wings to produce clicks, pops, and other sounds. Page 10.

Cats
Cats are a group of carnivores that includes the familiar domestic cat, lions, tigers, ocelots, jaguars, caracals, leopards, pumas, lynxes, and many other groups. There are 38 species of cats alive today. The articles listed below provide information about the characteristics, classification and evolution of cats.

Jaguar - Panthera onca
Jaguars, also known as panthers, are spotted cats that inhabit Central and South America. Their spots are arranged on some parts of their body in clusters called rosettes—rings of spots with a spot in the center. Although most jaguars are tan with black spots and rosettes, a rare genetic variation produces a black jaguar. Page 4.
