HUMMINGBIRD FUN FACTS: ACROBATS OF THE AIR

Since HUMMINGBIRD: A STAR TOUCHED STORY is coming out shortly, I thought I’d share some of the facts I learned while writing.

Hummingbirds are tiny marvels of aerodynamics. Unlike other birds, the bones in a hummingbird’s wings are fixed and rigid except at the shoulder. Their wings can rotate nearly 180 degrees in all directions. Not only can they fly forward and backward, they can hover in place and even fly upside down! During regular flight, those little wings can beat 78 times per second and up to 200 times per second if they are showing off.

Plagued by memories not her own, a young hummingbird struggles to decipher the visions and powers that set her apart from her fellow birds. But the road to awareness is fraught with danger that could doom her to repeat history. One step toward understanding. One stride toward survival. One leap toward flying free from the past.
