Hummingbirds are so cool! With over 300 varieties to pick from we’ve modeled ours on the Ruby-Throated Hummingbird. This little fella weighs in at a whopping 0.1oz which is about 35% less than the weight of a nickel! But don’t let their size fool you… they’re ferocious and will happily attack Jays, Crows and even Hawks infringing on their patch. When hovering their wings flap up to 200 times/second and their heart pumps 1,200 times/minute. To fuel this, they eat over half their body weight a day in sugar! Is there a bird out there that packs more punch? We don’t think so and having one permanently in your backyard will remind you of just how amazing our world is!
Our Hummingbird is:
- 4.3 inches high by 5.5 inches wide (doesn't include measurement of the branch/spike ( which is 8.3" long)
- Easily installed with the tap of a hammer (pre-drill hard wood)
- Designed in 1/6-inch Corten® steel to form a beautiful patina of rust that changes with the seasons
