Hummingbirds, the tiniest of all birds, are the only living thing that can come to a full stop whilst traveling at great speed. This curious bird can hover, move forward, backward, up or down in perpetual motion. Some cultures believed the hummingbird was magic because of its speed and talent to appear and disappear so quickly.
We have many territorial hummingbirds in our front and back yards and we have one or two that we could set our watches by. These little birds think they are the King or Queen of the Roost and quickly chase away any of their kind that invade their space…in the campo.
