Hummingbirds are the smallest birds.  Flap hovering 90 times a second, flying backwards, having a heart rate up to 1260 beats per minute with the highest metabolism of all makes the hummingbird highly unusual.  Though shades of red, orange and pink are the most attractive flower colors the purple flower here is acceptable to this guy. He is not picky.  To migrate he must double his weight. The average life span is 3 to 5 years but can go to 11.
