The Smallest Bird in the World
The Smallest Bird in the World is the Bee Hummingbird. Don't let their small size fool you! They fly extremely fast - up to 80 km/h! They do upto 80 swings in a second. They are also very mobile, fervent birds and are extremely courageous in attacks with larger birds.
The Smallest Bird in the World on a Pencil
The male bee hummingbird weighs approximately 1.7g, and its length is about 5cm. Half of the length is made of the tail and the beak! Females are a bit larger compared to the males.
This species is endemic to Cuba and Isla de la Juventud. The feathers of the bee hummingbird make it look like a tiny jewel as can be seen in the pictures.
