Hummingbirds are pretty amazing. For all their tiny size, they have to eat at least their weight in sweet nectar (the same stuff that bees use to make honey) every day, or they risk starving. But why do they have to eat so much? You’ve seen them fly, right? Depending on the species and what the bird is doing, they can beat their wings between 8-100+ times per second. This means their metabolism is through the roof, and they have to visit literally hundreds of flowers every day.
Hummingbirds are not only the smallest bird species in the world, they’re also the only ones who can fly backwards and hover (certain insects can hover, but no other birds). They’re kinda like avian helicopters in that way, huh? Another thing that’s kinda cool is that despite their super high metabolism, hummingbirds live a long time for something so small and swift – about ten years, give or take. That’s pretty impressive, and frankly, we think Mother Nature owes it to the hummingbird to give it a long life for how hard it has to work every single day just to stuff its face. And for once, Folkmanis’ puppet, which comes to life in your hands, ready for adventure, is roughly the same size as a real hummingbird. So you don’t have to pretend to be a gigantic bird of prey or what have you. What you see is what you get, and with Folkmanis, your imagination is the only thing limiting you.
