Watercolor Painting of a Hummingbird

Both as an adult and as a kid, the sight of a hummingbird has always felt like stumbling upon a beautiful surprise that will last but for a few moments!

Hummingbird and Flowers

Here are a few fun facts about hummingbirds:

  • Hummingbirds weigh only 0.7 ounces or less but are known to be extremely smart with a brain larger in comparison to body size than any other bird.
  • The birds can remember where every flower in their territory is and how long it takes to refill with nectar after they have fed.
  • Like marathon runners or teenagers, hummingbirds have super-fast metabolisms and need to eat constantly—about every 10 minutes.
