1 In the Americas, there lives a remarkable, petite bird. When the bird flies, it beats its wings so fast that it makes a humming sound. It's almost as if it is singing with its wings. Do you know what bird is this? That's right, it is the hummingbird.
2 There are 320 different species of hummingbirds in the world. Here in North America, we have 24 species of hummingbirds. The ruby-throated hummingbird is the only one that breeds east of the Mississippi River.
3 Hummingbirds are tiny. The bee hummingbird of Cuba is the smallest of all hummingbirds. It is also the smallest of all birds on Earth! Its body length is about 2.25 inches, and it weighs about 0.07 ounces (2 grams). The bee hummingbird is, indeed, not much bigger than a bee. Even the largest hummingbird, the giant hummingbird of South America, is just 8 inches long and weighs 0.70 ounces (20 grams).
