Ruby-throated Hummingbird: Skull (Replica)

Replica with fantastic detail - it is amazing how small this Florida resident really is.

The Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) is mostly found in eastern and central US, but breeds throughout the central US and Central America. Its long beak aids in nectaring, but the ruby-throated hummingbird will also eat insects and spiders. Often found in Florida gardens from March to October, it is a winter migrant to the tropical rainforest. Upon returning to Florida, mated pairs are formed and eggs approximately the size of a Tic-Tac mint are laid. They raise their nestlings in delicately lined, cup-like nests until they fledge.

Reaching a length of only 3 inches, it is, along with other hummingbirds, the smallest type of bird in the world. Hummingbirds are well known for their ability to hover and fly backwards like a helicopter. To accomplish this feat their wings beat about 90 times per second.
