Of all the species of birds, hummingbirds are perhaps the most facinating. Their small size hides incredible stamina and beauty. They come in many varieties, each well adapted for their specific environments. They live mostly off of flower nectar and help to pollinate plants in repayment. They can hover and fly backwards. They can be fiercely territorial. What marvels in miniature they are!
