THE SMALLEST BIRD IN THE WORLD(Article)


                                              
My dear children, do you know which is the smallest bird in the world? Well, the answer is that Bee Humming Bird is the smallest bird in the world. It is so small in size, just a bit larger than an insect, that is why it has been given the name Bee Humming Bird. This bird is found in the forest of Cuba. It weighs only 1.6 gram to 2 gram. It is about 5-6 cm long. The male is smaller than female. 

                                        
Bee humming bird  flies so fast! The speed of flying is 15 m/sec. It can flap its wings 80 times per second. It is the only bird in the world which can fly backwards also! Is not the beautiful and colorful Bee Humming bird an amazing bird? What do you think?                                                                                             -Aunt Mary

  12. Respected Aunt Mary!
    Thank you very much for posting this splendid post. I am already in love with humming bird but you have given very unique info that it fly back (you mean he move reverse as well)

    Can we say, it is 3D bird, which moves backward like any vehicle as well.

    So nice of you and carry on such beautiful information in future and I am fond of nature and love different creatures and species, world is replete with certain wonderful, mind-blowing and fascinating species.

  14. In Argentina and other countries of South America, you can find the little bird called 'tacuarita' (Polioptilidae family). They are very tiny, about 10 centimeters long. They look as tiny as humming birds!
