Father And Son Help Out A Struggling Hummingbird

May 6, 2015 By Serena Hayes
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.

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.
