Bee Hummingbord

The Bee Hummingbird, Mellisuga helenae, is the world’s smallest bird. These birds weigh less than a dime. They are found in parts of Cuba and nearby islands. They really are not much bigger than bees, so the name is quite accurate. Bee hummingbirds eat small insects and nectar. They are agile flyers, beating their wings 80 times a second (and sometimes 200 times a second in courtship displays). This uses a lot of energy, so these little birds have to eat the equivalent of half their body weight in nectar and insects every day. In breeding seasons the male has remarkably vividly colored feathers, and in flight looks like an airborne jewel. Their carefully built nests are less than an inch wide, and the eggs the size of a pea. Bee Hummingbirds re not yet endangered, but their population is dropping, primarily because of habitat destruction.
