WHITE-NECKED JACOBIN (Florisuga mellivora)
Hummingbirds burn so much energy in flight that they cannot survive without feeding for more than a day or so. Thus, rain or shine, they need to feed constantly. Commonly found in the Neotropical cloud forests, the tiny hummingbirds have become well adapted to flying in heavy rain. Research has found that the hummingbird’s water-resistant feathers absorb 50% of the impact from the heavy falling drops, helping the birds stay light in flight, and in good control.
