What is a hummingbird?
According to wikipedia encyclopedia
"Hummingbirds are birds in the family Trochilidae, and are endemic to the Americas. They can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 15–80 times per second (depending on the species). They can fly backwards, and are the only group of birds able to do so." " Their English name derives from the characteristic hum made by their wings."
"Hummingbirds are small birds with long, thin bills.""The bill, combined with an extendible, bifurcated tongue, allows the bird to feed upon nectar deep within flowers. The lower(mandible) can flex downward to create a wider bill opening; this facilitates the capture of flying insects in the mouth rather than at the tip of the bill."
