Some hummingbird facts:
- The extremely short legs of the ruby-throated hummingbird prevent it from walking or hopping. The best it can do is shuffle along a perch.
- It beats its wings 53 times per second.
- They build their 2" wide nests directly on top of a branch, using spider web threads to hold them together.
- The oldest known ruby-throated hummingbird was over 9 years old.
