Brightly-colored and mesmerizing, hummingbirds are some of the most interesting of the nearly 10,000 bird species in the world. If you live in the United States, you've probably seen them fluttering around during the summertime. Perhaps you've heard them, too—the name hummingbird comes from the buzzing sound of their fast-flapping wings. Here are some other fun facts about hummingbirds. There are 325+ unique hummingbird species in the world. The hummingbird’s only habitat is in North America, South America and Canada. Their hearts beat 1200 times a minute. Their eggs are smaller than jelly beans. These birds can fly up to 30 miles per hour. Hummingbirds are known to have a sweet tooth. They consume half their weight in sugar daily.
