To See It Is Just A Blur. The humming bird, one of the tiniest of all birds of which

To See It Is Just A Blur. The humming bird, one of the tiniest of all birds of which there are about 300 species hail from tropical America. They have a very high metabolism and the wing beats vary from approximately 65 - 80 beats per second. That is why visitors to the London Zoo Humming Bird House see the bird but not not the wings in flight - they are just a blur. 17th February 1972
