Hummingbirds flap their wings a blistering 12 to 80 times per second (depending on the species) when in flight. This can generate quite a bit of extra body heat, which must be dissipated somehow to prevent the birds from overheating. Now scientists think they understand a bit more about how these tiny creatures regulate body temperature.
It’s simple – hummingbirds regulate their body temperatures using the burning fires of hate and rage against all living things that blazes deep inside them. They are feathered wasps… 🙂
