Fly, Shake, Drink
in Amazing Slow Motion
National Geographic
They move so fast that human eyes see only a hovering spot of color, a blur of wings. But when frozen in time by high-speed cameras, hummingbirds yield their secrets.

Hummingbirds live exclusively in the Americas. The smallest can weigh less than two grams. The largest, the giant hummingbird found in Peru and Chile, tips the scales at around 20 grams. You could send something that weight in the U.S. mail with a single first-class stamp. World’s smallest birds is just one of several distinctions that hummingbird species claim. They’re the only birds that can hover in still air for 30 seconds or more. They’re the only birds with a “reverse gear”—that is, they can truly fly backward. And they’re the record holders for the fastest metabolic rate of any vertebrate on the planet.

Hummingbird Pool Party


As hummingbirds flutter into the scene, each has their own particular bathing style. Many choose to stay and relax in one place, while others have a more hyperactive personality. These high-strung birds take a quick dip and then, just as fast, are out of the water again. Because the video is so short, it’s worth watching a few times to observe how each of the individual hummingbirds interact with the pool—it’s fascinating.

While it’s not unusual to see one or two birds in a bath at a time, Wild Wings notes this particular sight is an anomaly; hummingbirds can be territorial, and the tranquility seen here doesn’t last. They write, “You’d never know they will be harassing each other in five minutes’ time.”

These Hummingbirds bathing are like little clowns playing in the water.
This fountain was designed especially for hummingbirds after watching them bathing in my sprinkler demo system. 
The fountains are available in limited quantity and only hand made to order signed and numbered. The custom acrylic water spitters feature color changing LED illumination creating a beautiful nighttime display. 
The hummingbirds bathe and dance on the water streams. 
Sometimes the hummingbirds are using the water jet like a treadmill.

Thirty Hummingbirds Partaking In a Peaceful Bathing Ritual Together 

Photographer wildwingsla captured absolutely amazing footage showing a charm of thirty hummingbirds partaking in their daily ablutions together in a bubbling bird bath. The photographer made particular note of the peaceful co-existence of the bathing birds, particularly since they are known to be a bit territorial.

A record 30 hummingbirds bathe together at one time during this morning’s wash! You’d never know they will be harassing each other in five minutes’ time…

Hummingbirds love water watch these Anna's Hummingbirds bathing, with Costa's Hummingbird, Male Goldfinch, and Male Housefinch, all playing in and sipping from the water streams and splashing in the basin. Hummingbirds are like precious little clowns when dancing in the water streams or using the water like a treadmill and skimming across the shallow basin. The hummingbirds dance on the water, take showers, fly through the streams, even sitting on the water columns or using it like a bidet in mid flight. Watching the hummingbirds performing these tricks is most amazing.

What Caffeine Does to Your Brain

Neuroscience candidate Shannon Odell takes us through exactly what's going on in your brain as you drink caffeine. 

Before we get started, make sure you're good and caffeinated so you can follow along.

Humans have been drinking the stuff for thousands of years, and it's actually the most regularly consumed psychoactive drug in the world. It's a psychostimulant that stimulates the CNS. you know, kinda like cocaine, meth, and Ritalin. But it's not a drug of abuse since it's only a mild stimulant.



Happy coffee drinking!!
