The Beauty of Hummingbirds

It doesn’t float like a butterfly, nor does it sting like a bee, but hummingbirds have their own very special beauty. Hummingbirds are numbered among the smallest species of birds. A hummingbird can range from a miniscule 7.5 to 13 centimeters. The Bee hummingbird measures only five centimeters. It is the smallest hummingbird.

Hummingbirds have the ability to hover in mid-air. This is because they can flap their wings at a very fast pace, ranging from 13 to 90 times per second. Hummingbirds also have the distinction of being the only gaggle of birdsthat can fly backwards. For such a tiny bird, hummingbirds can fly pretty fast. They can fly faster that 15 meters per second or 54 kilometers per hour.

In fact, the English name of the hummingbird is due to the trademark hum made by their rapidly beating wings.

The drink of choice for hummingbirds is nectar. This is a sweet liquid that can be found inside some flowers. Hummingbirds are like bees because they can detect the sugar content of the nectar that they consume. Hummingbirds will not drink from a flower if its nectar contains less than 10 percent sugar. The stronger the sugar content of a flower’s nectar, the more that hummingbirds prefer it. Hummingbirds must also supplant their nectar diet with insects and spiders. This takes care of their proteins and amino acids.
