Humming bird

I also adopt a humming bird.So i think let me share with you that what is Hummingbird.

They are among the smallest birds.They rapidly move and fly their wings which is also source of fame of this bird.The interesting thing is this that they can also fly backwards.
They can fly at speeds exceeding 15 m/s .Hummingbirds drink nectar, a sweet liquid inside certain flowers.

i have a humming bird feeder and if i am sitting on the deck. About 4 feet from the feeder, the hummer comes in and sounds like a tiny helicoptor. And he chatters at me as if to tell me i am invading his territory. They are beautiful little birds! Love them!

What country do you live in? In most, you need a permit to keep a wild bird species in your home

They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring in the 7.5–13 cm (3–5 in) range. Indeed, the smallest extant bird species is a hummingbird, the 5-cm Bee hummingbird they can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 12–90 times per second (depending on the species).They are also the only group of birds able to fly backwards.
