A Hummingbird flaps it's wings 55 time per second! They use a lot of energy and require high energy food. Hummingbirds eat more insects than nectar. Ants are their favorite insect meal.

Hummingbird Migrations: Hummingbirds migrate to South and Central America in the Fall of the year. In the spring, they return to North America. Hummingbirds follow long established migration routes.
