The Hummingbird is a really cool little bird. It can do a lot of stuff other birds can't, like fly in all directions and hover. Its wings can beat up to 200 times a second. That is really fast.
For most birds the male and female stay together to raise the babies, not so with Hummingbirds. The male usually has several mates all over the place.
Each mother lays up to 2 white eggs the size of jelly beans in a cup like nest.
I don't know how many different kinds of Hummingbirds there are, so I'll have to see.
