Allen's Hummingbird

Allen's Hummingbird

 

Despite their tiny size, male Allen's Hummingbirds are very aggressive and territorial. The male attracts a female using a complex aerial show which includes vocalizations.

 

Due to their high metabolism, they must eat constantly, feasting on nectar and insects, giving them energy for flapping their wings at incredible speeds.
