I have previously forwarded a "Mel's Video of the Day" that related to
birds (the migration across the Gulf into Texas). I got a good response
from several people on that one. This one is slo-mo footage showing how
hummers fly, even into a 20 MPH wind.

I found it interesting, hope you all do too.

Hello Will,


<http://coolestone.us1.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=cd56f260723d5040008c14389&id=0e0befdba1&e=684e33cf0a>

What Happens When You Put a Hummingbird in a Wind Tunnel...
<http://coolestone.us1.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=cd56f260723d5040008c14389&id=6c531a519b&e=684e33cf0a>

Scientists have used a high-speed camera to film hummingbirds' aerial
acrobatics at 1000 frames per second. They can see, frame by frame, how
neither wind nor rain stop these tiniest of birds from fueling up.

How do hummingbirds eat?

With spring in full bloom, hummingbirds can be spotted flitting from flower
to flower and lapping up the sugary nectar inside. These tiniest of birds
have the highest metabolism of any warm-blooded animal, requiring them to
consume their own body weight in nectar each day to survive.

By comparison, if a 150-pound human had the metabolism of a hummingbird, he
or she would need to consume the caloric equivalent of more than 300
hamburgers a day.

But it's not just an extreme appetite that sets hummingbirds apart from
other birds. These avian acrobats are the only birds that can fly sideways,
backwards and hover for long stretches of time. In fact, hovering is
essential to hummingbirds' survival since they have to keep their long,
thin beaks as steady as a surgeon's scalpel while probing flowers for
nectar.
