FLIGHT OF THE HUMMING BIRDS - (by Pete Bax)
Pete Bax This is a simple vibraphone telling the story of the humming bird it is a lot faster than any Bee and must consume its own body weight in sugar every day. You can hear it hover and drink and would make a musical background for anything that needs speed. Like a phone on hold or a computer calculating, Chromatic Percussion, Vibraphones

Extended Keywords: Hummingbird flight has been studied intensively from an aerodynamic perspective using wind tunnels and high-speed video cameras.

Writing in Nature, the biomechanist Douglas Warrick and coworkers studied the Rufous Hummingbird, Selasphorus rufus, in a wind tunnel using particle image velocimetry techniques and investigated the lift generated on the bird's upstroke and downstroke. They concluded that their subjects produced 75% of their weight support during the downstroke and 25% during the upstroke. Many earlier studies had assumed (implicitly or explicitly) that lift was generated equally during the two phases of the wingbeat cycle, as is the case of insects of a similar size. This finding shows that hummingbirds' hovering is similar to, but distinct from, that of hovering insects such as the hawk moths.

The Giant Hummingbird's wings beat up to 25 beats per second, which is about 1500 flaps per minute.
