    • Hummingbird is a small bird of the Trochilidae family.
      The rapid beating of the hummingbirds wings
      (60 to 80 beats per second) makes the distinctive
      humming sound from which they get their name.
    • The hummingbird is the smallest bird and also the smallest of all animals that have a backbone.
    • Because a hummingbird can rotate its wings in a circle, they are the only bird that can fly forwards, backwards, up, down,
      sideways and  hover in mid air.
    • A hummingbird has no sense of smell
    • Hummingbirds are the second largest
      Family of birds with 343 species.
    • A hummingbird has a heart rate that can reach up to
      1,260 beats per minute.
    • Percentage wise, the hummingbird has the largest brain of all
      birds (4.2% of its total body weight).
    • Hummingbirds have very weak feet and use them mainly
      just for perching.
    • During courtship dives a hummingbird does, can reach speeds up to 60 miles per hour and can average speeds of 20 to 30 miles per hour.
    • To conserve energy while they sleep or when food is
      scarce, they can go into a hibernation-like state (torpor)
      where their metabolic rate is slowed to 1/15th of its normal rate.
    • The foundation to make the perfect nest is made of spider webs due
      to their sticky nature. Next a layer of soft materials are added such
      as moss or leaf hairs.
    • Hummingbirds are found only in North America and South America.
      The hummingbird range extends as far north as South Eastern Alaska
      and the hummingbird range extends as far south as southern Chile.
    • South America has the biggest variety of hummingbirds and more than half
      The species are found there. The country of Ecuador in North Western South America has the largest number of hummingbirds of any one country with 163 different species.
