|Hummingbirds are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring in the 7.5–13 cm (3–5 in) range. They hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 12–80 times per second. They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings, which sometimes sounds like bees.
