Father And Son Help Out A Struggling Hummingbird
May 6, 2015
Here, we see that a live hummingbird is unable to fly or even move. When you see the reason why, it may have you second-guessing the scale of damage that something so simple can cause to these fragile creatures.
Hummingbirds are one of the smallest birds in the world, with most measuring in at just 7.5 cm-13 cm. The smallest of the hummingbird species is the bee hummingbird. It weighs less than a penny. Hummingbirds were given their name because of the humming sound created when they flap their wings. They flap around 50 times per second, which exerts a high frequency that is audible to humans. It's stating the obvious, but a hummingbird's wings are essential to its survival.
