The Calliope Hummingbird, named after the Greek muse Calliope, is the smallest bird found in the United States and Canada.

 

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