Hummingbirds are New World birds that constitute the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring 7.5–13 cm (3–5 in). Indeed, the smallest extant bird species is a hummingbird, the 5-cm bee hummingbird weighing less than a U.S. penny (2.5 g).
They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They hover in mid-air at rapid wing-flapping rates, typically around 50 times per second, allowing them also to fly at speeds exceeding 15 m/s (54 km/h; 34 mph).
Hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of any homeothermic animal. To conserve energy when food is scarce, and nightly when not foraging, they go into torpor, a state similar to hibernation, slowing metabolic rate to 1/15th of its normal rate.

Tools & Materials:
Scissors, utility knife
Glue stick and wood glue
Ruler or set square
Object with pointed tip
(dried-up ballpoint pen, stencil pen, etc.)
Tips for assembly:
Keep track of which part is which by writing each part's number in pencil on the back of the part.
Use a dried-up ballpoint pen, stencil pen, or other pointed object and a ruler to score along the fold lines. This will create sharper, neater folds.
Before gluing, fold and crease along the fold lines and add curves where needed.
Use a toothpick when applying glue. Thinly applied glue gives a neater finish.
Use tweezers when picking up and attaching small parts.
This paper craft uses scissors, utility knives, glue, and other items and materials which may be dangerous to children. Keep these items and materials out of reach of children while you work.
Take care not to injure yourself when using scissors, utility knives, and other sharp or pointed objects.
