All facts are interesting but this one is really amazing:

"Hummingbirds are not only the smallest birds but also the only birds that can fly backwards."

Can the Hummingbirds really fly backwards?

Hi there eyewitness,
i am glad you found these facts interesting.
Regarding the Hummingbirds, well apparently they can rotate each of their wings in a circle, allowing them to be the only bird which can fly backwards, forwards, up, down, sideways and so on...
