How much do you know about hummingbirds?ūü§Ē
Quiz of the Day

The hummingbird’s metabolism is so rapid that consumed sugars are used immediately to fuel the body.

Periods of torpor (rest with a low metabolic rate) ease the threat of starvation, but overall, they have to keep eating all day long to survive.

To survive long distance migrations (18-20 hour flight over the Gulf of Mexico), they bulk up their body fat ahead of time.
