Hummingbirds Do Hum

Yes, hummingbirds make humming noises. They're like tiny helicopters. Our newest nature photographer, Kitkat, sat really still on the Editorial porch the other evening, and captured a video on her mobile. This is a still from that footage.

The Prof says we should charge for hummingbird watching, 'to buy hummingbird food'. I said, 'Prof, hummingbirds live on sugar water.' (No, not soft drinks.) What kind of nature leaps, crawls, or flies in your neighbourhood? Share it with h2g2!
